Newtown, CT

Dear Connecticut Badgers:

As information about the tragic events of this morning continues to come to light, I wanted to reach out to our students from Connecticut and express my deepest sympathy. There are no words at a time like this to express the grief and horror we all feel in the face of this kind of violence. I want you to know that the entire university community stands with you, and we keep the citizens of Newtown and Connecticut in our thoughts. While we don’t yet know if any Badger families have been impacted by this event, I want you all to know that there are resources available should anyone need them:
