Dear Friends,

 

Many in the Wesleyan community have been focused on the horrific attacks in Paris on Friday night, and our hearts go out to the victims, their friends and families. As soon as we received word of the events, our staff began locating students enrolled in our study abroad program there. I want the Wesleyan community to know that all our students are accounted for and safe. Anyone with additional information concerning members of the Wesleyan community abroad should contact class deans or Michael Whaley, vice president for student affairs.

 

The attacks in Paris were meant to create terror in everyday life, and we have seen similar attempts in various parts of the world over the last several years. Mixed with our revulsion at this brutality is a determination to struggle against the tyranny of violence. Educational institutions depend on eliminating violence, and I trust that the Wesleyan community will stand in solidarity with people around the world in this effort. There is much work to be done, on campus and around the world.

 

For now, our hearts go out to those who are suffering in the wake of these attacks. May the time not be distant when we can give peace and justice the attention now taken up by terror.

 

Michael S. Roth

President
