Today we are mourning yesterday’s tragic murder of a recent University graduate. In this video, I express the University’s deepest sympathy for the family and other loved ones of our alumnus, Shaoxiong “Dennis” Zheng. I also discuss our commitment to working urgently with our local community, scholars across the University, as well as city, state, and federal elected officials and agencies, to address the serious problem of violence in our city.
