In this video message, President Armacost discusses the loss of Kim Werner, staff member at the International Center, and aviation student John Hauser. He noted that as the campus wrestles with the loss of life, he has seen some strong examples of campus unity and support for one another. More than 300 people attended a memorial last night for John, and more than 500 people gathered in the front yard of Delta Tau Delta to honor him last evening.
President Armacost reminds the campus that help and resources are available and to make use of them if needed. They include the University Counseling Center, CVIC at UND, and the Employee Assistance Program.
Finally, he asks friends and colleagues to look out for one another, to lend a helping hand, and to seek help if needed.
