In response to the motion made by Professor Desmond Lawler (civil, architectural, and environmental engineering) at the Faculty Council meeting held April 16, 2007, and on behalf of the Faculty Council, Chair Linda Golden and the Faculty Council Executive Committee adopted the following statement to send to Virginia Tech.

To the Students, Faculty, Staff and Board of Visitors at Virginia Tech (via their representative leaders),

        Our thoughts and our hearts are with you. Our deepest sympathies for your losses and your crisis.

With Heartfelt Sentiments From All of the Faculty, Staff, and Students at the University of Texas at Austin,

as adopted by each of our elected bodies: UT Austin Student Government (Andrew Solomon, President), Graduate Student Assembly (Brian Gatten, Chair), Staff Council (Erin Waneck, Chair), Faculty Graduate Assembly (Randy Parker, Chair), Senate of College Councils (Stephen Myers, Chair), and the Faculty Council (Linda Golden, Chair).

The sentiment was transmitted via email to Virginia Tech on April 17. The people to whom the statement was addressed were selected from a review of Virginia Tech's Web information, including their Faculty Senate, Staff Senate, Student Government (President, as well as Speaker of the Student Senate), University Council (chaired by the President and including other elected representatives), the Graduate Student Assembly, and their Board of Visitors. 

The resolution will be endorsed by the Faculty Council at its meeting on May 7, 2007.
