Members of the Park Community,
Sadly, during the same week in which our nation celebrates the 240th anniversary of its Declaration of Independence we are faced yet again with senseless acts of violence. The Park University family mourns the loss of innocent lives. As a university which takes pride both in serving a diverse student body and educating law enforcement leaders, we have much to offer – and more to do – as our nation attempts to heal and move forward.
We are embarking upon a “Year of Inclusion” in 2016-17 with programs and activities intended to educate and inspire. Although there are no easy answers, it is our hope that we as a community can model the understanding, sensitivity, collaboration and dialog essential to seeing these tragedies come to an end.
