Dear members of the Connecticut College community,

In light of the ongoing conflict in Israel-Gaza, Campus Safety has initiated additional safety strategies and protocols and a higher level of alert to mitigate any potential threats to our Jewish, Palestinian, Arab, Muslim and other students, faculty, staff and visitors and the campus in general. We also are coordinating with local law enforcement authorities and monitoring social media.

As always, Conn affirms the right to respectful, robust dialogue that adheres to the College’s principles of community and policy on freedom of expression.

Any safety concerns should be reported to Campus Safety at 860-439-2222.


Les Wong, Ph.D.
Interim President
