To the Campus Community,

As The Beacon reported on Jan. 30, there was a recent incident at one of our men's home basketball games that was unfortunate and misrepresentative of what Pilots Athletics is all about.

Our goal as an Athletic Department is to wholeheartedly support both the University's mission statement and Statement on Inclusion. We are committed, and looking forward to, being a part of more detailed and timely discussions on these issues as UP continues to broaden and deepen awareness about matters of inclusion which impact us all and make our community stronger.
