From Emily S. Tai
In an echo of the way that CUNY students were involved in efforts to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy, this week’s Inside Higher Ed included a profile of students from Western Carolina University, who put the boats from their fishing club to work to help victims stranded by Hurricane Harvey.
The New York Times also offered sources for a curriculum dedicated to Hurricane Harvey.
For those who wish to help, National Public Radio (NPR) has created this list of organizations assisting victims of Hurricane Harvey.
NPR correspondents have also interviewed representatives of agencies assisting victims of severe flooding and monsoon conditions in South Asia.
