University Update on the Crisis in Haiti
Written by Bwog Staff
Today, the University issued an update on the situation in Haiti, confirming that six SIPA students and one SIPA faculty member are on their way back to New York after being safely transferred to the Dominican Republic yesterday from Haiti. Two CIESIN (the Center for International Earth Science Information Network) faculty made it back to the U.S last night, and one Journalism student was flown to the Dominican Republic this afternoon. Government agencies have informed the University that the best way to help in the short term is through cash donations to organizations already operating in Haiti.
The news brief has additional information about how to locate family members in Haiti, and a short list of organizations accepting donations.
