A Message from President Hurley

To the University of Mary Washington Community: 

I’m sure you share my sentiments when I say that I am shocked and saddened by the events this week in Boston. They have been a powerful and horrific reminder of how quickly life can change. Our hearts go out to those killed or injured and to their families, and on behalf of the University, I extend our sincere condolences. These events have had a profound impact, not only on those families directly impacted, but upon our entire nation. 

I am confident that the entire UMW community joins me in extending our support to those who are seeking answers and striving to heal from this unimaginable tragedy. 


Richard V. Hurley
