Dear IMSA Family,

I write you with a heavy heart. Our IMSA community suffers from the same ills affecting our entire American society where hate, bias, and racial acrimony have replaced love, acceptance, tolerance, and inclusion.

An incident occurred on September 17, 2019 in Room A108 in IMSA's main building. This is a student lounge area referred to as "1508."

Ms. Dana Ginnett, Associate Director of Student Life, and Dr. Adrienne Coleman, Director of Equity and Inclusion, were informed that an unknown person tied a pink piece of cloth around a bronze skinned "Barbie-like" doll's throat, and pinned it up from a cork-board in the student lounge.
