On the Tragic Incident in Laguna Woods

May 17, 2022

We are deeply saddened to convey this statement on account of yet another needless and tragic shooting, this time in Laguna Woods, California. This horrifying incident marks a further moment of loss and tragedy for the Asian community in our country that has suffered deeply over these recent years in repeated incidents of violence – evil acts of cowardice and cruelty that have visited hurt and trauma during an already challenging time.

We stand with our VLS community members in supporting our impacted students and urge those that need support to seek out University resources. Please do rreach out to the administration for assistance in navigating support. At this moment of grief and outrage, we again encourage our students, staff and faculty to come together to protect our values and each other.

Equity, Diversity and Community
