On behalf of Roseman University, I’d like to send our condolences to the victims and family members affected by last night’s tragedy in our Las Vegas community. We applaud the efforts of our heroic first responders and local hospital staff who faced this unprecedented event with unwavering courage and professionalism. We stand united with our community in support of victims and their families, and everyone touched by this horrific event.
For students and employees who wish to offer help to victims, blood donations are needed. United Blood Services is accepting donations at its Henderson location at 601 Whitney Ranch Drive #20 and Las Vegas location at 6930 W Charleston Blvd. Employees who wish to give blood will be excused to do so.
The University is offering support to students and employees who are struggling to make sense of this event.
