This summer we have watched in horror at what feels like an unprecedented number of appalling, senseless acts of violence — within the US and around the world. But we are not just bystanders to these events. UC Berkeley is now mourning the tragic deaths of two of our undergraduate students — Tarishi Jain two weeks ago in Bangladesh, and Nicolas Leslie in France last week — while our thoughts are with other undergraduates injured in Nice. Some of you have taught or mentored these victims. More broadly, because of Berkeley’s global connectivity, many of us have personal connections with people and places afflicted by violence. My heart goes out to everyone affected. In the face of such horror, I find great solace in our university. I believe that we exemplify the best of the human spirit and its collective striving for the common good. I continue to be inspired by the values and ethos that are shared by our diverse community of scholars, teachers, and public servants. Whether you are preparing to serve in a profession or are creating new knowledge that will benefit society, I ask you to work now, and in the future, to spread our values to society at large. This is something that we can all do to make the world a more just and peaceful place. Sincerely, Fiona M. Doyle Dean of the Graduate Division Donald H.
