The Chaplain's Office staff joins the President, Provost, and the Faculty Steering Committee to deplore the recent racial incident on campus and to affirm our commitment to work for a community at Lehigh dedicated to equality and respect for the dignity of all persons.  The Chaplain's Office staff are available to any members of the community who wish to speak about he incident and issues related to it.  Conversation will be treated as confidential.


Troubled that anti-Muslim rhetoric has been spreading in the media and that attitudes of hostility toward Islam have been on the increase in the United States, we affirm the right of Muslims to practice their religion freely and without fear or intimidation.  We call on all members of our community to join Religious Life at Lehigh in celebrating religious diversity on campus, believing the Lehigh community as a whole benefits when religious expression is allowed to flourish.  We actively support this flourishing and are honored to have all religions welcomed and represented here.
