Fellow Bears, 

I am writing with heartbreaking news to convey as we were notified today that we lost a member of our university community. 

The coroner this afternoon confirmed the death of a student who was found in a residence hall on campus. While we are not in a position to share the identity of the student or any additional information at this time, the police have told us there is no safety threat to the campus community and the family of the student has been notified. 

I recognize this is difficult news, and any loss to our community affects us all. Many students are new to UNC and might not yet be familiar with the mental health resources available on campus. Even if you are off-campus, I encourage you to contact one of the resources listed below if needed in light of this tragedy: 

  • The University Counseling Center provides professional counseling services to currently enrolled UNC students free of charge. You may contact the Counseling Center to make an appointment at (970) 351-2496 or you may visit their website for additional information, http://www.unco.edu/counseling 

  • The Psychological Services Clinic is a mental health agency operated in the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences (CEBS) at the University of Northern Colorado. For additional information contact the clinic at (970) 351-1645 or visit their website at https://www.unco.edu/cebs/psychological-services-clinic/ 

In moments of loss, I encourage everyone in our Bear family to connect with each other to ensure all members of the UNC community feel welcomed, cared for, and supported.
