Amaney Jamal, Dean

Dear SPIA Community,

The catastrophic earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria earlier this week has killed many thousands of people, and injured and displaced countless others. All of us at SPIA are mourning these victims and keeping the entire region in our thoughts. We extend our deepest sympathies for the loss of life and our most fervent wishes for successful rescue and recovery efforts.

Many members of our community have ties in Turkey/Syria, and we stand here to support you as needed. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Counseling and Psychological Services if you need assistance. I also encourage you to schedule an appointment to talk with Tam Rovitto, Associate Director of Graduate Student Life.
