Widener Offers Support for those Grieving Orlando Victims

Dear Members of the Widener Community,

The horrific violence that took place in Orlando over the weekend grieves us all. Even though the incident happened nearly a thousand miles away, the Widener University family shares the pain and heartache of those directly affected by the tragedy. We express our deep sympathy and solidarity with those whose lives have been shattered by this senseless act of hatred.

As we absorb the shock and horror of the event, we strengthen our resolve that all members of Widener’s community are welcomed and valued in a campus climate that is characterized by compassion, tolerance, and inclusion.  We’re all Widener.

I encourage anyone who feels the need for additional support to contact the residence life team or call campus safety to speak with the on-call psychologist.

Sincerely,

Julie E. Wollman Ph.D. 
President
