It is with deep sadness and a pained heart that I contact you this afternoon. As you may have heard, earlier today an individual fell from the Washington Avenue pedestrian bridge. At this time, we do not have any details to share other than that we, in conjunction with local city and county partners, are investigating this case.
As vice provost and dean of students, I want to speak directly to you, our student body, during this tragedy.
Please know that we are here for you.
