After torch-bearing white supremacists invaded the University of Virginia’s historic Lawn on 11 August in a display of racism, hate and violence, a bevy of business schools responded with a very different message: support and unity for the Darden School of Business.

The School has been moved and awed by the outpouring of support from its peer schools: Thank you! The Darden community expresses its thanks to all who have stood in solidarity with Darden. See a roundup of some of the messages of support on social media below:
