The Office for Equity and Diversity at the U joins the Orlando, FL community and the nation in grieving the horrific massacre that took place early Sunday morning. On this very difficult day, we offer heartfelt condolences to the victims and their families.

We know that the action committed by an individual has brought up strong emotions for many members of our community. We urge all students, staff and faculty to seek support in sorting through this difficult situation. Counseling services are available through the University Counseling Center.
