Colleges across the country will observe a moment of silence today to honor the victims of the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon. The American Association of Community Colleges is requesting student and faculty members show their solidarity in supporting UCC's campus by joining a moment of silence today at 11 a.m. Pacific, 2 p.m. Eastern and on social media using the hashtag #IamUCC.
Last week the campus of roughly 3,000 students became the site of the third-most-deadly shooting to occur on a college campus.
