Pal-Item – Swastika drawn outside Earlham dorm room door
(Description note, “A swastika was drawn outside a dorm room at Earlham College this weekend, leading to the perpetrator being banned from the campus. On Sunday, Earlham public safety officers were alerted to a swastika being written on a dry erase board hanging outside a room where two students are living. The officers, along with personnel from the college’s Department of Student Life, conducted a full internal investigation and offered support for all students affected by the incident, according to a statement released Monday night by Brian Zimmerman, Earlham’s director of media relations. After the investigation, the responsible individual was identified and action was taken, including banning that individual from visiting campus in the future. The responsible individual isn’t a member of the Earlham community, Zimmerman said.”)

AMCHA – Press Release by BDS Earlham
(Description note, “On April 22, following three weeks of deliberation, the Student Senate of Earham (sic) College passed a resolution in support of divestment from companies directly involved in the Israeli Occupation of Palestine. The resolution, presented by Boycott Divestment Sanctions Earlham (BDS Earlham), calls for divestment from three major companies profiting from the Occupation: Motorola Solutions, Hewlett Packard, and Caterpillar. This Senate Victory was a unique one. As opposed to a voting-based model, the Earlham Student Senate utilizes a consensus-based decision making model… BDS Earlham approached the Student Senate on two separate occasions prior to this most recent presentation of the student resolution. In the interaction with the Senate in the spring of 2013, the Senate agreed to take a poll of students’ opinions regarding divestment, and then agreed to hold an allstudent meeting the following fall. However, in the fall the Senate chose to drop the meeting out of fear of not remaining “neutral” on a controversial issue. “Our support for the resolution stems from our continuous commitment to our school’s mission and the Principles and Practices that guide Earlham’s decision making process as inspired by the Quaker testimony. Earlham’s Diversity Aspirations Vision Statement clearly states that, as a college community, ‘we seek to promote the presence and voice of groups that have been historically oppressed.’ Supporting the resolution is part of our attempt to live up to the values that shape who we are as a community,” said CoPresidents of Earlham Student Government, Claire Welsh and Hashem AbuSham’a… We are also excited to be the 21st college to have a Student Senate endorse divestment from Occupation of Palestine. We believe strongly that every small victory is impactful for the larger BDS movement.”)
