A Message Concerning the Tragedy in Boston

We are deeply saddened by the Boston Marathon tragedy of this year’s event, and we wish to express our heartfelt sympathy and strong support for all those affected.

To the WPI Community:

For many of us in the WPI Community, the Boston marathon has long been a rite of spring and an example of the strength of the human spirit. We are deeply saddened by the tragedy of this year’s event, and we wish to express our heartfelt sympathy and strong support for all those affected, including those who suffered injury, and especially the families and friends of those whose lives were lost. It was an unthinkable display of the worst of human behavior.

For those members of the WPI community in need of support or reassurance, we encourage reaching out to The Wellness Corporation (our employee assistance program, at 800-828-6025), to counselors at the Student Development and Counseling Center (5540), or to residence hall staff. We know also that you will find strength in each other, in your faith, and from friends and families.

Thank you all for your continuing concern and kindness. You have my deep appreciation and best good wishes.

Sincerely,

Dennis Berkey
WPI President
