Message concerning attack on Bacha Khan University

Jan. 21, 2016

On behalf of the McGill University community, I wish to express our profound shock and sadness over this morning’s violent attack on Bacha Khan University in northwestern Pakistan, where at least 20 people were killed by gunmen and many injured. I offer our deep condolences to those who suffered losses. To our students and staff from Pakistan, and to those with colleagues or friends at Bacha Khan, I offer our hopes for the safety of loved ones and friends.

If you would like some help in dealing with this difficult time, the University offers confidential support services for students and faculty and staff.
