Statement on fraternity house vandalism

To the campus community:

We are aware of the recent vandalism that has been reported to Ann Arbor Police at two off-campus fraternity houses where University of Michigan students will be living in the fall. Both houses are vacant for the summer.

The university condemns these acts of vandalism, which included broken windows and spray-painted messages that are vile, homophobic and antisemitic.

These types of incidents are in direct conflict with the university’s deeply held values of respect and inclusion and have no place within our campus community or in the broader Ann Arbor community.
