A Statement on the Events in Washington, D.C.

January 6, 2021

Dear Campus Community,

I write to you this afternoon with an incredulous sense of horror, sadness, and shame over the riotous acts taking place right now on Capitol Hill. These lawless actions tear at the fabric of our country and our democracy and cannot—must not—be tolerated. As president of Ursinus College, I do not condone any action that threatens our democracy and mutual respect of one another—the very essence that makes our country great. We have work to do. As we seek a better society, we must be united and not divided. We must work together and not against each other. These are values that our college—and our country—are built upon and need to thrive.

Sincerely,

President Brock Blomberg
