I want to stress how important it is that all of us take care of ourselves and also look out for each other as members of a campus community. When we are aware of someone who is in distress, we demonstrate compassion when we extend ourselves to that person, rather than ignoring the need. This is what it means to be a caring community.”  --President David Skorton
