Statement on the Terrorist Attacks on Israeli Citizens and the Violence in the Gaza Strip

To the Aggie Community:

Our community is reeling and in pain from the terror and escalating violence we are witnessing in Israel and in the Gaza Strip. Especially horrific is the use of hostages and the great losses of both Israeli and Palestinian civilian lives. We stand in support of our Jewish and Muslim communities. We deeply mourn this catastrophic loss of life and the destruction of many families and futures.

Statement: Resources and Support for Those Impacted by Unrest in Iran

In recent weeks, Iran has experienced widespread unrest in cities throughout the country, where protests have erupted following the death of Mahsa Amini. Last week, the UC Davis Iranian Student Association held a memorial service for Ms. Amini. We are deeply saddened by the death of Ms. Amini and those who have lost their lives while protesting in Iran. UC Davis is committed to upholding fundamental human rights. We affirm the dignity inherent in all of us and strive to maintain a climate of equity and justice. We stand against the use of violence, repression, and discrimination.
