UC Riverside students, faculty, and staff comprise a dynamic, global community and are impacted by world events every day. We are deeply saddened by the death of Mahsa Amini and distressed to see violence inflicted on people who protest for basic human rights.
Our thoughts are with those in our community who have connections to the region. Health and wellness resources are available to students, faculty, and staff who may be experiencing additional stress in response to the situation in Iran.”
