Statement Denouncing Koala Publication From UC San Diego Administration

November 18, 2015

We, the UC San Diego administration, strongly denounce the Koala publication and the offensive and hurtful language it chooses to publish.  The Koala is profoundly repugnant, repulsive, attacking and cruel.  The UC San Diego administration does not provide any financial support for the Koala, and we call on all students, faculty, staff and community members to join us in condemning this publication and other hurtful acts.
