Statement from Chancellor Kent Syverud Regarding the Events in Washington, D.C.

“Like many Americans, I have been watching in horror the events unfolding in Washington, D.C. I am disgusted by the violence taking place at the U.S. Capitol, and by the words of President Trump and others who incited them. Acts of destruction do not move our nation forward. Respect for our constitution. Respect for the peaceful transfer of power. Respect for one another. These are at the core of our democracy and who we are as Americans. I pray for a peaceful resolution and for the safety of the people of Washington, D.C.”
