September 11, 2001

To the UC Davis Community:

The tragedies this morning in New York City, Washington, D.C., and western
Pennsylvania are still, as I write this just a few hours later, almost
unbelievable, a nightmare of the worst proportions that may not yet be over.
Hundreds, probably thousands, of lives have been lost, and tens of thousands
have been personally touched. A period of mourning is upon us.

While the university remains open and our police department is on full
alert, supervisors are granted liberal discretion in responding to the needs
of employees who may be affected by this tragedy. Similarly, instructors in
courses currently in session may use their discretion in canceling or
refocusing the topics of their classes.

While it is premature to assign responsibility, this is a tragedy that
affects us all, and we must respond as a community, supporting each other
with compassion and understanding.

I will convene a campus gathering for faculty, staff and students at 9:30
a.m. tomorrow (Wednesday, September 12) in Freeborn Hall. In addition, an
interfaith service of worship sponsored by campus clergy will be held at 4
p.m. Wednesday in Freeborn Hall.

Staff from the Counseling Center and the Academic and Staff Assistance
Program (ASAP) are available to you, as well. They will be present at
Wednesday's 9:30 a.m. campus gathering and are also available by phone at
752-0871 and 752-ASAP, respectively.

Additionally, we are inquiring about the desirability of organizing blood
donations. And Freeborn Plaza has been designated as a community gathering
spot for those wishing to leave remembrances of those who have been lost in
these tragedies.

As information becomes available, it will be posted on the campus's Web
page,  <>

Larry N. Vanderhoef
