Dear Members of the Northeastern Community,
The news of the attacks emerging from Paris has shaken all of us to the core. As events continue to unfold, I want you to know that we are actively working to confirm the safety and well-being of our students, alumni, and friends who are currently in the Paris region. We have confirmed the safety of many members of the Northeastern community already.
During this terrible time, may all of us keep the victims in Paris, and their families, in our thoughts and prayers. The Northeastern community will always be united in solidarity with the people of France; their ideals of liberty, equality, and fraternity will never be diminished by acts of unspeakable hatred and violence.
Joseph E. Aoun
