Vanderbilt leaders issue statement regarding threats against HBCUs

“We stand with the leadership, students, faculty and staff of HBCUs targeted with violent threats. These acts are abhorrent and have no place in our society. It is especially reprehensible for this to occur at the start of Black History Month—a time when our nation should be placing particular focus on celebrating and recognizing the long and storied history of HBCUs and their contributions to our nation’s progress.”
