Many in the university community have been watching the news unfold in Afghanistan. To faculty, staff, students and alumni with ties to Afghanistan, we appreciate that this must be a particularly difficult and worrying time.
We also know a number of individuals have reached out to members of our university community for support to leave Afghanistan. We are currently investigating what can be done to assist those individuals.
