Response to NIU Shooting

Menlo College extends its sympathy to the family, teachers, and friends of the students killed and wounded in the tragic shooting on Northern Illinois University's campus this Thursday. A college campus is like a family – supportive and accepting – and when trust in the safety of that institution is violated, the academic community around the world suffers a tremendous loss. Let us work together in a learning environment where human dignity is respected and where discussion of diverse perspectives is openly encouraged without fear of violence.

G. Timothy Haight

President, Menlo College
