President pushes back on allegations of antisemitism at University of Vermont

Suresh Garimella, president of the University of Vermont, forcefully denied claims Thursday that administrators failed to address allegations of antisemitism following revelations that federal officials had launched an investigation into the university.

Garimella’s strong response came one day after news outlets, including VTDigger, reported that the federal Department of Education had opened an investigation into the university’s administration’s response to reports of antisemitic incidents on campus.

In his statement, sent to UVM community members and the media, Garimella pushed back on the allegations while saying that news reports on the investigation have “painted our community in a patently false light.”
