University Community Touched by Chilean Earthquake
Several academic and student support offices are taking steps to help University students affected by this weekend's earthquake in Chile, including three undergraduates who were on study abroad programs in Santiago and several students from the country who are studying in graduate programs in the Simon School and in the School of Arts and Sciences. "While we are grateful that early reports indicate this earthquake may not be of the scope of January's events in Haiti, we will do all we can to help those students, faculty, and staff who are touched by this tragedy," President Seligman said. "We will continue to monitor the situation in Chile and offer the appropriate support to those who have been affected."
