Subject: Hurricane Maria
At a time when we should be looking forward to the excitement and opportunities associated with the start of a new academic year, the historic impact of Hurricane Maria on Puerto Rico is a sobering reminder to all of us of our vulnerability to unpredictable and destructive events at home and abroad. On behalf of the staff in Campus and Student Life, I hope that any family members and friends you have who live or work in Puerto Rico are safe. Knowing that the road to recovery may be a long one, please take advantage of the help and support resources at the University if you are facing challenges as a result of the storm.
