Statement of Solidarity with the People of Iran

The events in Iran following the death of Mahsa Amini have been deeply disturbing and added to the concerns for the safety and security of family and friends in Iran. We stand with the voices calling for freedom of intellect and thought and demand the most basic rights. We reiterate the message by Chancellor Khosla and are committed to upholding fundamental human rights. We stand in solidarity against the use of violence, repression, and discrimination. 

We are also concerned about the welfare of our community members who are affected by these events. If you are experiencing feelings of grief and anxiety, we encourage you to seek assistance UC San Diego offers for Students via CAPS, and for Faculty and Staff via Faculty and Staff Assistance Program
