President’s Message Regarding Orlando Massacre

#OrlandoStrong graphicOn behalf of the Kent State University family, I express profound sadness and solidarity with the citizens of Orlando and the entire state of Florida as we all grieve the loss and injury of the victims from the weekend’s tragedy. 

Please know that Kent State will continue to advocate for peace, reconciliation and understanding among all people, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation or identity. This support is central to our mission to transform lives and communities in an inclusive environment.

In the days ahead, we wish for peace instead of violence, love instead of hate, and inclusion for all. Our thoughts will continue to be focused on those affected by this tragic loss of lives and on our own community as we strive to be a part of a better world.

With warm regards,
Beverly Warren
Kent State University
