Critical Incident Message – Vanderbilt Political Review [Updated]
As part of our commitment to fostering an inclusive and welcoming environment for all students, Vanderbilt University is actively engaging with students who have expressed concerns about an opinion article published in the Vanderbilt Political Review. The opinion article focused on Chinese students who are attending U.S. colleges and universities. We understand that many in our community take issue with the article’s portrayals of Chinese students.
As a university, we value the diverse perspectives our international students bring to our campus. We have and will continue to support the inclusion of students and scholars from around the world in our community. Their contribution is integral to the university’s mission of teaching, research, and discovery.
The Vanderbilt Political Review is not a publication of Vanderbilt University, but is an independent student publication and part of a separate nonprofit entity. To be clear, the opinions expressed in the piece do not represent those of Vanderbilt University.
Vanderbilt supports a free and independent press and values the thoughtful and respectful exchange of ideas.
In the interest of fostering dialogue and a campus environment in which all feel valued and respected, the university is providing support to those affected as well as providing feedback to the student staff of Vanderbilt Political Review who have offered a public response on the issue.
