A student-organized rally against hate will be held 12:30 p.m. Friday in front of the Nott Memorial. In an e-mail letter sent Thursday, Dean of Faculty Therese McCarty encouraged faculty members to dismiss class at 12:25 p.m. Friday, if possible, to facilitate attendance.

“We are fortunate that students are undertaking this effort since it is very important that we unite as a community against hate,” McCarty said.

The rally comes in response to recent events surrounding e-mails sent to a small group of students, administrators and faculty since last May. Local authorities are working with College officials to identify the sender.
