Chancellor Fuller releases statement on the ongoing violence in Israel
Dear Members of the UMass Dartmouth Community,
I know that many of us are horrified by the vile terrorist attacks and ongoing violence in Israel that has left hundreds dead and thousands wounded. Our thoughts are with the families of all those affected by these unconscionable acts, and we pray for the hostages’ safe return.
The University’s Division of Student Affairs has reached to our students who are directly impacted by this crisis to offer a range of support services. I appreciate all the staff, faculty and students who have reached out to support and comfort those who are worried about their family and friends in the region.
For students who need support, please reach out to the Counseling Center, which has an after-hours crisis line. The Center for Religious and Spiritual Life provides confidential pastoral counseling from several faith traditions and can be reached at 508.999.8872.
Faculty and staff needing support are encouraged to take advantage of the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for free counseling. Enter our company ID: UMASS to speak to a counseling professional.
Mark A. Fuller, PhD
