A letter to the USC community

致南加州大学社区函

by USC News staff

A message from Provost Elizabeth Garrett

Dear USC students, faculty and staff:

It is with great sadness that I write to inform you about the tragic passing of one of our engineering graduate students at his apartment north of campus, near 30th Street and Vermont Avenue. We are withholding the student’s name until the family can be notified.

Los Angeles Police Department is investigating the student’s death, which appears to have occurred sometime this morning from a head injury, the cause of which has not been determined. We will wait for more information from LAPD before drawing any conclusions. From all early indications, this was an isolated incident and there was and is no apparent threat to the campus community.

Student Affairs is reaching out to the student’s family, roommate and friends to offer all appropriate support and counseling. We urge anyone who would like counseling or other support to contact Student Affairs at (213) 740-2421 or Student Counseling Services at (213) 740-7711.

We will provide more information as we receive it on the family’s wishes regarding a memorial for our student.

Our hearts are with the victim’s family and friends, and our entire Trojan Family.

Elizabeth Garrett

Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs

Elizabeth Garrett教务长致辞

尊敬的南加州大学学生、教师和工作人员:

我怀着悲伤的心情写信告知你们我们一位工程研究生在靠近30街和Vermont大道的校园北部公寓不幸过世的噩耗。在他的家人得到通知之前,我们会对学生的姓名进行保密。

洛杉矶警察局(LAPD)正在对该学生的死亡进行调查,初步推测是早上头部受创引致,但受创原因有待进一步确定。我们正在等待洛杉矶警察局提供更多信息,以便能够得出结论。从所有早期迹象看来,这只是一件个别事件,对当时和现在校园安全没有构成明显威胁。

学生事务部正在与该学生的家人、室友和朋友取得联系,向他们提供一切所需的支持和辅导。任何人如果因为这件不幸事件需要辅导或寻求其他协助,请致电(213) 740-2421与学生事务部或 (213) 740-7711与学生辅导服务部联系。

一旦我们收到关于该学生的追悼活动请求,我们将第一时间提供更多相关信息。

我们与受害人的家人和朋友,以及整个Trojan大家庭一样对此事件感到悲痛。

Elizabeth Garrett

教务长兼学术事务资深副总裁
