Message to Campus Community Regarding Death of a Student

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff:

It is with great sadness that I write to you today to notify you of the death of Syracuse University student, Britny Kabic.

Originally from Hatboro, Pennsylvania, Britny was a student in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. She died unexpectedly last night.

I join Chancellor Syverud and the entire University community in extending our heartfelt condolences to her family, friends, and all who knew her during this painful time. Our thoughts are with all of those grieving this terrible loss.

This is a time of great sorrow for the entire University community. As we mourn together, a variety of services are available to students, faculty, and staff. Students seeking support can contact the Counseling Center 24-hours a day, seven days a week at 315-443-4715. Additional services are provided by the Office of Student Assistance, Monday through Friday, by calling 315-443-4357. For faculty and staff, assistance is available through Carebridge, the University’s Faculty and Staff Assistance Program. Trained clinicians answer the phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week and can be reached at 800-437-0911.

For additional support and services, the campus community can contact Hendricks Chapel at 315-443-2901 or visit the chapel website for chaplaincy contact information. The main chapel is also open 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. for prayer and reflection.

With sadness,

Rebecca Reed Kantrowitz
