The UNO community joins with the rest of our city, state and country in sharing our condolences, sympathy and concern following the attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand last week.
"Our thoughts and prayers go to the families and communities so devastated by this event," said UNO Chancellor Jeffrey P. Gold, M.D. "It's a vivid reminder of how powerful hate can be and how much stronger love can be."
To any students, faculty, staff or alumni with ties to New Zealand, or are otherwise impacted by the attacks, we stand in solidarity with you and are ready to provide support:
- If you, or someone you know, may be struggling with these events, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the International Programs staff in person at Arts and Sciences Hall, Room 241, or by phone at 402.554.2293.
