The tragedy in Las Vegas

To: UC Santa Cruz Community

From: Chancellor George Blumenthal

There are times in our collective lives when words fail us, when the sadness of a senseless tragedy weighs heavy on us all, making it hard to face the regular responsibilities of our lives. These past two days feel like one of those times.

On behalf of UC Santa Cruz, we extend our deepest condolences and sympathies to all those affected by the horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas. We want to reassure our entire campus community of our dedication to your well-being.

We urge anyone impacted by this incident, directly or indirectly, to utilize our counseling resources.

In addition to the support services offered by staff in our colleges, Counseling and Psychological Services provides assistance for students.

For employees, the Employee Assistance Program can provide counseling and support.
