President Newkirk’s message regarding the situation in Israel

Dear University Community, 

We are shocked and heartbroken to hear of the distressing events unfolding in Israel and Gaza. The loss of life and profound suffering of countless individuals is deeply saddening, and our thoughts and hearts are with everyone affected.

In the days ahead, let’s hold each other close and draw strength from our University community. On Thursday, October 12, at 12:15 p.m., the University will host a gathering of support in the CDI offices, located on the first floor of the Hunsaker Center. 

Additionally, our Counseling Center is readily available to provide support to any student in need, complemented by the services offered through TimelyCare. For our employees, the University’s Employee Assistance and Advocacy Program is also available to assist.


Krista L. Newkirk
