On Friday, President Philomena V. Mantella addressed the campus community via a statement reassuring every member of the community how much they mean and are cared for.
The statement reads; “As we are ending the semester, I write to you with many thoughts and emotions about what we have all experienced together, and what individuals experience alone. We have had collective challenges, like the pandemic, and we have had personal tragedies. While we are proud of our campus safety, we are a large university community, and this semester we have suffered accidents, medical events and mental health concerns. We are affected by the losses, the pressure of the pandemic, and the loads we carry into the end of the calendar year. Some of us may need additional support.”
“My main message to you is that you are an important member of our campus community, and we care about you. In addition to your family and friends, there are many professional resources available to you, and I want to make sure you know about them. If you live on campus, your RA and other Housing and Residence Life staff are a good source of support, and they are connected to additional resources on campus.”
