Resources for those impacted by the earthquake in Turkey and Syria

Dear Vols,

Over the past few weeks, residents of Turkey and Syria have been recovering from the impact of a significant earthquake that has resulted in massive losses for that region of the world. We know that there are many of you feeling the impact of this as well, whether it is your home country, or you have other connections to these affected communities.

Our teams in the Center for Global Engagement, the Office of the Dean of Students, and colleagues throughout the Division of Student Life, are ready to offer you care and support as we are certain for many of you your attention will be elsewhere in the coming days and weeks. Know that offices like ours and those listed below are deeply committed to what you may be feeling right now, and the anxiety caused by being away from your home, family, or friends.

With hope,

Byron Hughes, Ph.D.
Assistant Vice Chancellor and Dean of Students

Gretchen Neisler, Ph.D.
Vice Provost for International Affairs
