University statement on events in Paris

Professor Aldwyn Cooper, Vice Chancellor of Regent’s University London: 

“We have been working to contact all of our students and staff who are currently in France for work and study and are pleased to report that they are all safe following the horrendous terror attacks in Paris. 

“Our student support teams remain on standby and we continue to monitor the situation closely. 

“Our thoughts and hearts go out to the French people in this time of crisis. Universities, especially one like Regent’s that has such an international focus, have a duty to promote debate, dialogue and understanding to help stop destructive acts such as this one.”
