A Special Message from our Chair Person

    Dear Ivy Circle members and friends,

    The hurt, anger, fear and frustration surrounding the tragic events in Israel and Gaza have exploded on U.S. college campuses, with several of our member schools as flashpoints. Many of you will have seen news coverage of campus rallies, vigils, threats and backlash – including from high profile alumni and donors. Safety concerns are rife.

    I hope that our Ivy Circle community can offer us all a place of connection, support, and peaceful exchange at this time of uncertainty and even loneliness for many.


    Hollis Kurman, Chairperson Ivy Circle Netherlands
