University of Virginia President Jim Ryan, UVA Police Chief Tim Longo and other senior leaders will convene an online town hall Tuesday afternoon to provide an update and answer questions about Saturday’s protest near the UVA Chapel that led police to declare an unlawful assembly and arrest demonstrators who didn’t leave.

The digital town hall will be streamed live beginning at 12:15 p.m. For participants who would like the opportunity to ask a question, registration is required and a separate link will be sent through email. The registration link can accommodate 3,000 people while the livestream can host an unlimited number of viewers.

Also scheduled to join the town hall are Provost Ian Baucom, Chief Operating Officer Jennifer “J.J.” Wagner Davis and Vice President and Chief Student Affairs Officer Kenyon Bonner.
