Invitation to a Peace Ceremony

Dear Wheaton Community,

The news of war erupting between Hamas and Israel has brought anguish and pain to countless people worldwide, including many in our extended Wheaton community.

At Wheaton, we condemn all acts of violence and hatred. We recognize that members of our community have ties to lives lost in this war, and we extend our compassion and condolences. We all mourn the dead and are heartsick at the suffering of those wounded and grieving.

Our Center for Social Justice and Community Impact is a resource for students. Students can access the Interfaith Coordinator at the Center for Religious and Spiritual Life, Dr. Laurie Cozad. In addition, our Counseling Center welcomes all students affected by the violence.

Wheaton will not tolerate hate, violence, intimidation, harassment, or discrimination of any community member.

We invite the Wheaton community to meet for a Peace Ceremony this Thursday, October 12, at 5:45 pm at Cole Chapel.


President Michaele Whelan
