Dear Colleagues, On Saturday, we experienced an unspeakable tragedy in our city — as one headline read, “a massacre in the heart of Mister Rogers’ neighborhood.” We all know Mister Rogers would remind us of how many caring people there are in the world, and give us his mother’s advice to “look for the helpers.” I hope that in this time of sadness, we can all be helpers to each other. If you are impacted in any way by the tragic events at the Tree of Life Synagogue, please know that the University has resources available on the Pitt Cares: Community Resources page.
