Dartmouth College’s vice provost of student affairs has apologized to those involved in the protests on November 12th in which students marched under Black Lives Matter into Baker-Berry library and interrupted students working there, with some reports saying there was physical violence.
The vice provost, Inge-Lise Ameer, apologized last Monday to those involved, but not the group you may think. She issued her apology to the protesters, not the students in the library who withstood the alleged physical violence and verbal threats, expressing that she felt sorry for the protestors that they felt the way they did.
According to a video of the meeting where Ameer spoke, she went on to say that the protest was a “beautiful” thing and that the reaction in the library was symbolic of today’s society.
Last week, Dartmouth officially announced that no complaints of violence have stemming from the protest have been reported and that they are constantly working to maintain security and safety within its campus.
