Statement on teaching assistant issue

October 9, 2017

UW-Madison is aware of past statements on social media attributed to a teaching assistant that run counter to our university values of inclusivity, respect, and non-violence.

Based on a mutual desire to avoid disruption of course sections taught by this TA, the sections will be handled by other instructors, effective immediately. Students who have any concerns about the class may reach out to the course instructor.

Like all members of the public, our students, faculty and staff hold a wide range of personal and political beliefs. We believe these views can and should be exercised outside of the classroom without impinging on the learning environment.
