As you may have seen in media reports, it is with a heavy heart that I must convey the tragic news of the death of a CSI undergraduate, Shantasia O’Brian, this past weekend. Our hearts go out to her family and friends during this difficult period, and I want to take this time to extend our condolences to all.

Coping with such loss can be overwhelming and can affect one in different ways. As we mourn the loss of a member of the CSI family, I want to remind our campus community of the resources that are available to support you in this time of need:

For Employees: Human Resources at 718.982.2676 or CUNY’s EAP CCA@Your Service at 800.833.8707

For students: Student Counseling Center at 718.982.2391
