“On behalf of the University of Wisconsin System’s 26 campuses and 170,000 students, we extend our deepest condolences to the students, faculty, and staff at Northern Illinois University. Though many challenges lie ahead as our NIU colleagues begin the healing process, their Wisconsin neighbors join together in hoping for strength and peace. All victims and their families will be in our thoughts. We stand ready to provide whatever support may be necessary to help NIU through this difficult time.”
