Update on the Earthquake Haiti

January 13, 2010

Dear fellow member of the Columbia community:

On behalf of Columbia University, I want to express our sympathy and support for the people of Haiti and for all those affected by the recent disaster.

The small number of students, faculty, and administrators whom we know to be in Haiti, appear to be fine as far as we can tell at this moment.  Our administrative team responsible for dealing with situations such as this is hard at work.  We continue to reach out to our schools, centers, and institutes to determine whether there may be other Columbia affiliates in Haiti.

I promise we will provide continuous updates on our website as we learn more about the situation.
