Students, faculty members and administrators gathered at UMass Dartmouth on Wednesday to honor those killed and survivors at last year's Boston Marathon.

During a vigil which included music and prayers, Chancellor Divina Grossman urged the gathering make a strong committment to make the world a better place.

Grossman said she hopes the alleged actions of bombing suspect Dzokhar Tsarnaev and several other students will not taint the community service and hard work of nearly 10,000 other students at UMass Dartmouth.

Tsarnaev was a student living on campus at UMass Dartmouth at the time the attacks were carried out.
