President Milliken's statement on the tragedy at Virginia Tech
NU flag at half mast Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the tragic shootings at Virginia Tech University. On behalf of the members of the University of Nebraska community, I extend our deepest sympathies to the families, friends and colleagues of those who were killed or injured. This incident is a chilling reminder of how important it is to ensure that our campuses are as safe as possible. The safety of our students, faculty and staff is our highest priority, and each of our campuses has plans in place in the event of an emergency. As a result of this tragedy, we will again review our practices and procedures to make sure we are taking appropriate safety precautions and that we are prepared to respond as promptly and effectively as possible. Although a tragedy like this is impossible to predict, we must be as well-prepared and vigilant as we can be in protecting our campus communities.
