Re: A Statement from AUC Presidents Regarding Treatment of AUC Famly Members and Ongoing Protests

Dear Atlanta University Center Community,

Last night, two members of the Atlanta University Center family (one from Morehouse College and one from Spelman College) were detained with unnecessary force by law enforcement in downtown Atlanta. While we understand the need to maintain order, the abusive behavior reported to us is completely unacceptable.

The presidents of the
Atlanta University Center Consortium drafted a statement found here in response to the treatment of our students and provide guidance to students that may choose to participate in future demonstrations.

Please refer to institutional communications and websites for additional statements.
