To our students from and in Nepal: we continue to keep you, your families, and your country in our thoughts. This morning faculty and staff gathered for updates from University leadership in our semi-annual University Assembly. During the assembly, Dr. David Decker reflected on the tragic earthquake in Nepal and called for a moment of silence to honor the victims.
Within OISP, we have deep concern for you, our students, who are impacted. We have received notices for various fundraising efforts, and many of us within the University are contributing our personal funds to such efforts. Many of our Nepalese students come to us by way of our online partnership with Silver Mountain Graduate Business School in Kathmandu, and others of you have come independently to the US to study. Please do let us know if you have special needs or circumstances as a result of this catastrophe. We are here to advise you on the resources available to you and to provide you moral support. While you may feel very alone at the moment, please know that we care deeply about your wellbeing.
With my sincere condolences,
Director of International Students and Programs
