A week after the shooting that killed 49 people at an Orlando nightclub, President Geoffrey Mearns expressed condolences to the victims of the tragedy in an email sent to the campus community Monday.

He expressed that he condemns all acts of violence, particularly those directed at people “based on sexual orientation or personal identity.”

“Our University values inclusiveness, compassion, and respect, and we renew our commitment to creating a community where all people are welcome.  We respect the dignity of all people at our University,” he wrote.

Mearns asked members of the campus community to walk with him in the Cincinnati Pride Parade. A group from NKU will meet to walk in the parade at 10 a.m. on June 25 at the intersection of 7th Street and Central Avenue.  

He also said a campus event to honor the victims of the tragedy and to show support for the LGBTQ community is being planned for August.

The University provides support services in the summer through the Office of LGBTQ Programs & Services and Health Counseling and Student Wellness Services.
