Update on today's event

Dear Wolf Pack Family,
Earlier today we were deeply saddened to learn that one of our students was found deceased on campus. The death of a student affects our entire University. We mourn this tragic loss. On behalf of the University, I wish to offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased student.
As previously noted, there is no indication of suspicious circumstances and we have confirmed there was and is no threat to campus. Out of respect for the student and the family, we will continue to honor their privacy.
Times of deep and profound loss are a reminder that we must always look out for one another. It is important that we come together, and perhaps just as importantly, know that in coming together, each of us processes moments like this quite differently. Anyone who needs help is encouraged to seek out a number of University resources.
Counseling Services offer therapy and psychological services for students; the Downing Counseling Clinic (through the College of Education and Human Development) offers therapy services for students, faculty and staff; and the Employee Assistance Program is available for faculty and staff. The University’s LiveWell program is also available to help you prioritize your well-being and navigate campus resources that are available to help you do so.
Already today we have seen in the wake of this tragic news what often happens on our campus. Students have comforted other students. Faculty and staff have reached out and have made themselves available. We need each other like never before. Let us all on this tragic day continue to offer one another grace and understanding.
