    Our Thoughts Are with the UCLA Community

    Dear Members of the UCSF Community:

    I extend our collective condolences to the members of the UCLA community, who experienced a tragic act of violence this morning. The shock of such an event is felt most immediately and deeply at UCLA but affects the entire UC system. Our heartfelt thoughts go to the families and friends of those killed.

    We are encouraged to hear that UCLA’s emergency alert and lockdown protocols were implemented effectively. Such events also serve as an important reminder that we all have a role in ensuring the safety and security of our community here at UCSF. A series of safety and security town halls is scheduled for the month of June.

    I urge you to do your part:
