Supporting Those Impacted by the Earthquake in Turkey and Syria
Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:
Throughout this week, we have watched with deep concern and sadness as news has unfolded about the catastrophic earthquake in regions of Turkey and Syria. On behalf of Syracuse University, we extend our sincerest thoughts, care and compassion to all those impacted by the unfathomable loss and devastation.
We know these events have personally impacted some members of our community, their loved ones and their hometowns in incomprehensible ways. Dean of Students Sheriah Dixon has been in touch with those students we have been able to identify and who we believe are most closely affected to extend our support and share resources.
We recognize the impact of this tragedy extends across our campus community and may be affecting students, faculty and staff in a variety of ways. For those seeking support, we want to remind you of available resources:
- Students may contact the Barnes Center at The Arch for confidential counseling 24 hours a day, seven days a week by calling 315.443.8000.
- Students seeking ongoing support can reach Student Outreach case managers by calling 315.443.4357.
- Faculty and staff may contact Carebridge and reach trained clinicians 24 hours a day, seven days a week by calling 800.437.0911.
- Campus community members can reach Hendricks Chapel by calling 315.443.2901 or visiting the website to find contact information for each chaplaincy.
In the face of such difficult circumstances, we also are deeply heartened by the way members of the Orange community have come together to show their support and solidarity and lend their help in any way they can. In particular, we want to recognize the Turkish Student Association and its efforts to raise awareness, collect donations and support those impacted. We encourage you to visit the association’s table in Schine Student Center where you can learn more and contribute to relief efforts.
Please continue to keep those impacted in Turkey and Syria in your thoughts and extending care and support to those in our community who have been affected.
