Northeastern suspended operations on Monday to hold two live events focused on unity, equality, and justice. A morning vigil will be held in response to the killing of George Floyd and other Black people by police officers, to be followed by a discussion on civil rights and justice.

“We will use this time and space—exactly two weeks after the unjust and inhumane killing of George Floyd—to hold a ‘Day for Reflection, Engagement, and Action,’” Joseph E. Aoun, president of Northeastern, wrote in an announcement on Wednesday.
