Statement from Chancellor Matthew Goldstein, The City University of New York, on the earthquake in Turkey

October 25, 2011 | News from the Chancellor

All of us at The City University of New York were saddened to learn of the devastating effects of Sunday’s powerful earthquake in Turkey.  On behalf of CUNY, I offer deepest condolences to the residents of eastern Turkey, as well as the CUNY students, faculty, staff, and alumni who trace their ancestry to Turkey and may have family members, friends, and colleagues in the affected areas.  Our thoughts are with the communities of eastern Turkey and related members of our CUNY community as they confront the tragic impact of the earthquake.

I have designated Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Frank Sanchez to coordinate University-wide relief efforts.  Those who wish to make donations may also contact the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City through www.nyc.gov.
