“We must stand together to heal.”

—Judith Rodin, President of the University

Quotes from a day of tragedy

Within hours of the attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, the University mobilized. Houston Hall became a haven for concerned students.

Counselors, this one from Human Resources, were on hand to advise the grieving.

Dining Services put out food for those who still had appetites.

And the University set up large TVs to show live news coverage of the attack.

At a Sept. 13 service commemorating those who lost their lives in the attack, Hillel Rabbi Howard Alpert (left to right), Imam Kenneth Nur-id Din of Majlis Ash-Shura, Father Charles Pfeffer of the Newman Center and Chaplain William Gipson all offered reflections and words of comfort. University President Judith Rodin also spoke at the service.

And responding to a campus-wide rush to give blood, the American Red Cross staged a blood drive on campus Sept. 14.
