The statement that Vice President for Equity and Diversity Katrice Albert and President Kaler sent to the Twin Cities University community in the aftermath of the Dallas police killings.

We stand together in pain and mourning with the UMN Police Department and other members of our campus community affiliated with law enforcement.
