University Will Join Day of Mourning for President George H.W. Bush

Dear UT Dallas students, faculty and staff:

At UT Dallas, we will join in the National Day of Mourning on Wednesday, Dec. 5, to honor George H.W. Bush, the 41st President of the United States. President Bush will be remembered as a World War II veteran, a successful businessman and a dedicated public servant to both Texas and the nation.

He will be honored with a televised memorial service at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., at 10 a.m. CST on Wednesday. I invite you to pause at that time for a moment of silence and to reflect on his distinguished public service and exemplary leadership.

Campus will remain open on Wednesday, and classes will be in session.
