To the Campus Community:
The tragedy we are all experiencing right now with the death of President Earl H. Potter III, is profound. Like every member of the St. Cloud State University community, my first and foremost concern is for the well-being of his wife Christine Potter and the entire Potter family. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family at this time.
As a campus community, we are all grieving this great loss to not only St. Cloud State University but to the greater St. Cloud community, the state of Minnesota, the region and the global community.
As we grieve Dr. Potter’s death, let us all come together as a community to share and strengthen the legacy that Dr. Potter leaves behind at St. Cloud State.
Chancellor Steven Rosenstone and I will be meeting on campus with campus constituents this morning and holding a press conference and campus gathering at 11 a.m. in the lobby of Administrative Services Building.
More information will be coming in the next few days about services and an opportunity to come together as a campus community to celebrate President Potter and his tremendous contributions to our university.
Resources and professional support are available on campus:
- Counseling and Psychological Services
o Stewart Hall 103
- Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
Please join me in offering our deepest sympathy to the Potter family.
Ashish Vaidya, acting president
