Student Government Column

On Saturday, an unspeakable tragedy took place in our neighborhood. Carnegie Mellon’s Student Government stands behind all those impacted, especially our Jewish students and organizations.

Several resources are available to those seeking support. Student organizations including Chabad of CMU, Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi), and Hillel Jewish Students Association have expressed their willingness to support all members of the community and are working to provide an outlet to process and mourn Saturday’s heinous act. Counseling and Psychological Services (CaPS) support is available 24 hours a day at 412-268-2922. The Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion is open from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. and can also be reached at 412-268-2150 as an additional resource.

Although Saturday’s events may affect us differently, the pride we share in our inclusive community remains constant. This attack targeted a specific group, but our response must be to reject hatred, violence, and anti-Semitism as a unified student body. As we try to heal, remember the values we have in common — compassion, courage, and resilience in the face of adversity. As always, student government is here to listen and help where we can.
