Dear Students and Colleagues,
This morning, we heard the devastating news of another mass shooting, this time in the city many of us call home. We at IUPUI mourn those whose lives were lost at the FedEx Ground Facility near the Indianapolis International Airport. We also extend our deepest condolences to and stand ready to support the friends and families whose loved ones were killed or wounded in this act of senseless violence. Many of us have close personal contacts who worked there, and we will keep you in our thoughts as we collectively face the grief and despair that results from such a tragedy.
As we move forward, let's draw on the strength of our community and continue to support one another. If you have been impacted by this news, I would encourage you to turn to the available resources, including Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) as well as the Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
Take care and stay well,
Nasser H. Paydar
