To our Penn State Community,

While much is still unknown about the circumstances surrounding the tragic killings Tuesday evening in Atlanta that took the lives of eight innocent people, including six Asian women, our heart goes out to the victims and their families. Authorities have yet to determine a motive for the shootings, but we understand the fear and uncertainty that some in our community may be experiencing. We wish to again reaffirm our support for our Asian and Asian-American students, faculty and staff, reiterate our commitment to their inclusion within our community, and offer resources to assist those in need.
