The staff of the McDonald Center for Student Well-Being are horrified and deeply saddened by the hate based violence that has plagued our country of late. We stand by students, staff, and faculty of every religion, color, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, social or economic class, and nationality. Belongingness is a well-being issue. If we are not a part of helping everyone feel that they belong, we are part of the problem. Please, join our staff in lifting up the victims and survivors and do our part, wherever we are, to make our communities safe, supportive and welcoming.
