A Message from Vice Provost Armony

This weekend’s shooting at Tree of Life Synagogue has shaken many
of us to the core, as it shook our university and our city. It is truly painful
to see a hate crime committed here in Pittsburgh, one of the most progressive,
accepting communities that I have had the privilege to be a part of. 

Yet it is already clear that Pittsburgh will persevere in the face
of this tragedy. We are resilient, and we are united, as Mayor Bill Peduto so
aptly says of the Pittsburgh community. 

Here at the University of Pittsburgh, we have resources available
to students, faculty, and staff impacted in any
way by the tragic events. We are a family, and we support each other.
Please take a look to the helpful University and community
that are available to you anytime. And please know that my door
is always open to you if you wish to talk.


Ariel C. Armony
