Message from the President and Provost

| June 19, 2015

At Webster University, we are committed to building connections within our global network of campus locations to ensure high quality learning experiences that transform students for global citizenship and individual excellence. The connections forged through this mission mean the hope and tragedies experienced locally in our communities are felt globally throughout our diverse network.

Thus, it is with heartfelt sadness that we recognize the June 17th tragedy at the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Webster University has served students in the Charleston region since 1975, and it is home to a dedicated alumni chapter. We currently serve over 280 graduate, undergraduate and online students through the Charleston Metropolitan campus. Charleston is a part of Webster, just as Webster is a part of Charleston and the communities we call home throughout the world.

The entire Webster University network feels the responsibility of our mission, as a worldwide institution, to build the bridges to understanding and healing in circumstances such as these. Please join us in lending your support and sympathy at this time. The work we do as educators entails fostering local and global understanding, caring for others and striving to build strong, resilient communities.

Elizabeth (Beth) J. Stroble
President

Julian Z. Schuster
Provost, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer
