Statement from A-State's Chancellor concerning incident

A Message from Arkansas State University Chancellor Tim Hudson:

Yesterday, our campus community came together to respond to a threat that has become all too common in the world today.  As the morning breaks and we count our blessings, these things we know to be true.

We are a strong community.

We are resilient.

We are grateful for our professional colleagues

those that protect us from harm

those who plan our well being

those who mentor, counsel, console and heal us

those who uplift and support our dreams and ambitions.

We rely upon each other:  our faculty and staff

who are always ready, aware and available

who care and respond

who guide our awakening

who put the safety of our students first.

Our students:

who are our raison d'être, our mission

who inspire us to vigilance; to educate leaders, enhance intellectual growth and enrich lives

who remain the center of our lives.

We draw sustenance from our city and sustain it in return; symbiosis in action.

We respect each other; we embrace diversity and tolerance; we eschew ignorance and injustice.

We are all learners on a journey.

We cooperate with each other in times of trouble.

We lead -- and we follow leadership -- through challenges, through opportunities; epiphanies and dilemmas.

We remain optimistic about the future

of our university

of our state

of our nation

of humankind.

We keep our sisters and brothers.

We pay it forward.

We say for ourselves and for the world, "We ARE:  A-State!!"

The mighty Red Wolf Nation -- built on a legacy of commitment and bound for a brighter horizon.

Yesterday we were; today and tomorrow we will be:  "Red Wolf Strong.”

Together we rise; together we thrive.
