September 11 Observance

Dear campus community:

On Wednesday, September 11, our country will mark the anniversary of the tragic events of the terrorist attacks of 18 years ago. 

The University, in partnership with the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, is offering a day of public programming including art and discussion.  The day includes a video screening, a panel discussion, and a gallery exhibit.  You can find additional details by clicking on this link

In addition, in honor of our country and in remembrance of all those who lost their lives, there will be a tolling of the University bells for two minutes at the following times:

            8:46 a.m.          AA Flight 11 was flown into the World Trade Center North Tower.
            9:03 a.m.          AA Flight 175 was flown into the World Trade Center South Tower.
            9:43 a.m.          AA Flight 77 was flown into the Pentagon.
           10:10 a.m.         UA Flight 93 crashed in Somerset County, PA after heroic actions by passengers and crew.

Members of the Monmouth University community who are on campus are invited to observe a moment of silence at these times.

At noon the University bells will ring out our National Anthem.
