In a statement to the campus, UWM Chancellor Mark Mone said, “I know that we are all shocked and deeply saddened by this tragedy. On behalf of UW-Milwaukee, I express our sympathy and support for all Parisians and French citizens and their families.”

There will, also, be a vigil at 5:15 PM Monday at the southeast corner of Water and Wells streets.
