We mourn the destruction of education in Gaza, and we hold space for Palestinian students, academics, administrators, and staff, whose lives continue to be at risk. ¶ Faculty, students, staff, administrators, and community members are invited to join us for this opportunity to reflect on the loss of life and knowledge, and to grieve and to support each other during this traumatic moment in history.
