Recent National Events

Dear Members of the Monmouth University Community:

All of us here at Monmouth stand together with the communities of Buffalo, Laguna Woods, and now Uvalde. While the circumstances that influenced each of these unprovoked acts of violence were different, each resulted in the senseless loss of innocent life.

In times like these, I am particularly grateful for our colleagues in the Monmouth University Police Department who spend their days in service to the protection of our community. I am thankful to our colleagues in Counseling & Psychological Services who provide invaluable mental health support to our community throughout the year and especially at times of discord and disarray. And I am likewise thankful to all of you who support one another, every day.

As we process these recent events, please remember that there are many services available to you on and off campus. The University has resources available through Counseling and Psychological Services and the Office of Human Resources to support our community.

Please join me in hoping for peace throughout our nation as we grieve the loss of innocent life at this difficult time.

Dr. Patrick F. Leahy
