To Members of the Bowdoin Community,

I’m writing to alert you that I have posted on the Darfur website ( a recommendation to the Trustees regarding College investments and other appropriate measures regarding Darfur.  The Board of Trustees discussed the Darfur situation and the report of the campus committee at its May meeting and requested a recommendation from me.  I expect that the Board of Trustees of the College will consider this recommendation soon.

This recommendation deals primarily with actions to be taken by the College as an institution.  I encourage all of you as individuals to commit yourselves to individual and collective action that you deem appropriate to demonstrate your commitment to a peaceful and safe resolution in Darfur.

Very truly yours,

Barry Mills
