A Letter from the UA

Hello Everyone, 

As the Undergraduate Association (UA) Executive board and representatives of the student body, we want you to know that we are here to support you. We do not condone any acts of discrimination and are upset about recent actions by some that have caused hurt and make our college both a less welcoming and less inclusive space for students from some of the many incredible groups represented on campus. In order to reduce the likelihood of recent events occurring again, we are working with other student leaders, the Black Student Union, and the Administration to develop and implement a plan of action that will result in long-lasting structural change at Nazareth University.

We understand that this is a frustrating time for many reasons. We want to make sure that we are fully transparent with you because no student should feel like they are in the dark or that their voice is not being heard. We encourage you to take advantage of opportunities offered as part of the communication efforts that we, and other departments, are making.

Once again, we do not approve of any act that goes against the student code of conduct or is discriminatory in any way. Our goal is to create a supportive and inclusive environment at Nazareth University and we hope that you will join us to achieve that goal. We believe in creating an environment where everyone feels safe and included in this process, and will be sending updates as we continually work on this important issue.

We want to hear from you, whether to express your concerns, your experiences, your ideas, or anything else you would like to share. Please feel free to contact us over email ( if you have any questions or concerns and we will do our best to make sure that you are heard and supported.
