Messages from the Dean
W&L's Commitment to Academic Freedom and Faculty Safety
On Sept. 7, 2020, the provost and academic deans issued a statement reiterating W&L's commitment to academic freedom and faculty safety. The statement comes in response to recent incidents of harassment directed at faculty members who exercise their academic freedom.

We write to you following another weekend of protests across our country and the world. We share the sense of frustration, anger, and indignation many of you feel. Because of our different backgrounds, we come to this latest example of racial oppression in our country with unique perspectives.
