Pause to Grieve

Dear Campus Community:

Far too often over the last several years, we have witnessed acts of horrific violence in our country, with the motivation for such evil almost impossible to comprehend. We are currently unaware of any students, faculty, staff or alumni being directly affected by the mass shooting in Las Vegas, but we are all indirectly impacted by such violence. As we pause to grieve those lost and wounded, and the countless families affected, we will explore ways that we might be able to reach out and help. Kindness always makes a difference.

If you would like to share your thoughts, please do not hesitate to reach out. If you would like to talk with one of our professional support staff, please contact our Dean of Students, Dr. Justin Lawhead, or the UofM Counseling Center, 901.678.2068 or

We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.

Warm Regards,

M. David Rudd
Distinguished University Professor
