Dear Carolina Community:
By now, I am sure you are aware of the tragic and senseless killings at the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C. that occurred last night. All of us in the Carolina Community are shocked and saddened by this devastating news, and our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to the families, friends and community members affected by this tragedy. I understand all too well that when a horrific event strikes one community, it strikes all communities.
We know many of you are deeply affected by this news and we want to make sure you know about all the campus resources available. The University is offering on-site support and counseling. We encourage students to call Counseling and Psychological Services (919-966-3658), and faculty and staff to contact our Employee Assistance Program (877-314-5841). We also will continue to do everything we can to ensure the safety of our campus.
Thank you for joining with us in supporting everyone affected at this difficult time.
Carol L. Folt
