The University of Florida Undergraduate Wednesday Update
Date: September 1, 2005
To: All University of Florida Students, Faculty, and Staff
From: Dr. Patricia Telles-Irvin, Vice President for Student Affairs
Re: Support for Victims of Hurricane Katrina
All of us in the Division of Student Affairs extend our thoughts and
prayers to all students, staff and faculty who have family, friends or
loved ones affected by Hurricane Katrina. Our concerns and consolation go
out to our neighbors in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and west Florida
as they persevere through this terrible tragedy.
University of Florida students whom we know have been impacted have been
contacted and support has been offered through our services in the
Counseling Center and the Department of Housing and Residence Education.
We continue to assist students as needs arise.
Students and staff at the University of Florida are coordinating relief
efforts to assist those dealing with the aftermath of Katrina. If you
wish to contribute your time or resources to these efforts, please visit
the Center for Leadership and Service at www.dso.ufl.edu/cls/hurricane.php
