Many CUNY students, faculty and staff are mourning and in shock in the wake of Hurricane Matthew, which killed more than 1,000 people as it carved a path of devastation across the Caribbean, including Haiti, and the southern United States. On behalf of the University, I extend our deep concern and condolences to everyone in the CUNY community who is affected by this disaster.
Our campuses are offering counseling and other direct support to students, faculty and staff, even as we work with the University community to assist the victims. Interim Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Chris Rosa is leading this University-wide effort. We urge everyone at CUNY to generously contribute their time, energy and financial support in this evolving effort.
