A message to our community

Sent to: Michigan Engineering faculty, staff and students

Dear Michigan Engineering Community:

Over the past few days, we have read reports of the horrific attack by Hamas and the ensuing, devastating violence in Israel and Gaza. The immense loss of civilian lives is a global tragedy, with many members of our community directly impacted by what is unfolding. It is with deep concern for all who are suffering that I reach out to ask for compassion and support here at Michigan Engineering.

Our community is built upon values of camaraderie, inclusivity and respect, and we can let our values guide us as the scale and effect of violence unfolds. Please continue to extend compassion for those who may be personally impacted by the ongoing violence.

The Michigan Engineering C.A.R.E. Center has reached out to international students from the region, as has University Student Life, Hillel and other student groups to offer supportive services. Please check on your friends, students and colleagues, and reach out to the offices noted below should you need support.
