UWM has made contact with six students and a faculty member who are studying and traveling in France, and all are safe. After offering the account on behalf of the Center for International Education, Chancellor Mark Mone expressed shock and sadness on behalf of the university for all Parisians and French citizens.
"Unfortunately, it is becoming all too common for innocent bystanders to become the victims of terrorist attacks in locations around the world," Mone said.
Mone said he hopes UWM can inspire people to use discourse and debate to resolve conflict.
The university is offering counseling services, for students in need.
