Local Events

In the wake of the tragedy at the Tree of Life Synagogue, Pitt Human Resources arranged for free, on-site support on the Pittsburgh campus. Life Solutions professionals were available on Nov. 1 at the Medical Arts Building and Scaife Hall. They also hosted an Oct. 31 group support session for Pitt faculty and staff at the University Club and offered individualized support on Oct. 30.

Some 3,000 Pitt students and faculty and staff members gathered on the Cathedral of Learning lawn Nov. 5 to mourn as a community, pay respect to lives lost in the Tree of Life synagogue shooting, and find a way to move forward.
