Dear Students from the Kansas City-area,

I’m reaching out to provide support in the wake of the shootings that occurred yesterday at the Kansas City Chiefs' Super Bowl celebration. Whether or not you or your loved ones have been directly impacted, I encourage you to seek support from your community, including here at Columbia. 

Should you need or want additional support at this time, University resources are available:

I hope that you and your loved ones are safe and well. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to assist you. I am always available at [email protected].
