    University community responds to an American tragedy

    []University faculty members, students and staff joined President Randel and representatives of the Jewish, Hindu, Muslim, Christian and Buddhist faiths on the Main Quad last Wednesday to remember those who died in the Tuesday, Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York; the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.; and the hijacked plane that crashed outside of Pittsburgh, Penn. The interfaith ceremony was coordinated by Alison Boden, Dean of Rockefeller Memorial Chapel, and her staff. Nearly 250 people gathered for prayer and to listen to readings from sacred texts.
