    Dear members of the University community,

    As you may know, one of our students was injured last week during an off-campus shooting across the street from Huger Hall. He is recovering at home with family members, and they have given us permission to report that he is doing well and is looking forward to returning to campus soon. We wish him a speedy recovery.

    Dear friends,

    My family and I have been deeply touched by the expressions of support and sympathy so many of you have shown since Gail’s passing.

    The incredible outpouring of love from every corner of our community has sustained us, and while we continue to mourn her death, your acts of kindness have reminded us of the extraordinary person Gail was, the beautiful legacy she left, and the caring nature of the University family she proudly served.
