Message about the events in China and Myanmar

Dear Students,

We all have been moved by the images and stories from China and Myanmar in recent days. It is particularly saddening to see the effect these disasters have had on children and families. It will take weeks, if not months, for us to understand fully the scale of these events.

As an institution with an international reach, the University is moved to assist anytime its students, employees or partners are affected by such a disaster. Over the days ahead, we will be meeting with our students from China and Myanmar in an effort to develop an appropriate response. As part of that, Student Affairs will hold a forum early next week for these students, during which counselors from the Counseling, Testing and Career Center will talk about healthy responses to traumatic events. Please look for the announcement regarding the day, time and location of this forum in the next day or so.

Those counselors are also available to assist any student who wishes to talk about the events. Call 330-972-7082 to arrange for a session.

We also encourage students, faculty and staff to support the relief efforts. The American Red Cross is accepting donations to help those in both China and Myanmar. Learn more about what you can do to help those needing assistance in China and in Myanmar.

To our students and colleagues from those regions, please know that our thoughts are with you, and we extend our condolences to you and your families back home. Please take comfort in knowing that we join with people around the world in our support of you.

Sincerely,

Beth Stroble
Senior Vice President and Provost and Chief Operating Officer

Charlie Fey
Vice President for Student Affairs

The University of Akron's Zipmail is a compilation of University announcements for University students, sent each Friday unless circumstances require otherwise. The deadline for submissions to be considered by the University is 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday.

Zipmail is a University of Akron communication vehicle established for the benefit of The University of Akron to communicate with its students. Items will be accepted for publication only when the University is directly involved in the activity through participation, sponsorship, or partnership with one of its recognized organizations, colleges or departments. The University reserves the right to edit or to refuse to run any submission for any reason. Zipmail is not, nor is it intended to be, a public forum or a limited public forum. Questions about the implementation of this policy may be directed to zipmail@uakron.edu.

Items to be considered for inclusion in Zipmail should be sent through the Zipmail Event Submission Form. Due to the volume of submissions received, items will not run more than one time.

Questions about specific announcements should be made to the contact person/department/organization listed in the announcement.Your event will automatically be forwarded to the University's online calendar. The Zipmail Coordinator can be reached at x2837.
