Re: *Benjamin J. Mohla*

It is with great sadness that we inform the University community that 
Benjamin Mohla from Wakefield, MA, a senior in the Rubenstein School of 
Environment and Natural Resources, passed away Saturday afternoon, 
November 23, 2013 due to an automobile accident in Randolph, VT.

We extend our deepest condolences to Ben's family. Our sincere thoughts 
of care and sympathy are also extended to Ben's friends and to faculty 
and staff who were close to him. Ben was majoring in Environmental 
Sciences and was a Production Assistant for Conference and Events 
Services. He was also an active leader in the "Living Place Design 
Competition," a collaboration between the Greenhouse Residential 
Learning Community Program and the Rubenstein School.

Information about campus and/or family services will follow as it 
becomes available.

As is the case when any member of our community passes away, we are 
bound to feel a profound sense of loss, and reactions are felt in a 
variety of ways. If you or someone you know is in need of additional 
support please do not hesitate to contact UVM's Counseling and 
Psychiatry Services at (802) 656-3340 (for students) or the Wellness 
Corporation at 1-800-361-5527 (for employee assistance).
