A Message from the President on Supporting Disaster Relief
August 30, 2017
Dear Members of the Campus Community,
Hurricane Harvey has brought days of devastation to the city of Houston and its citizens.
The relentless storm has left many stranded, without power, and short on life-sustaining
resources. I know together, we extend our sympathies to those impacted.
In the wake of this natural disaster, I have reached out to several of our Texas alumni,
asking what we, as a University community, can do to help. Their suggestion was to
send aid through donations to the American Red Cross or any number of other relief
organizations. A list of options for your consideration is included on this page.
The effects of Hurricane Harvey will far outlast the storm, altering lives for the
foreseeable future. I urge our community to do what we can to extend compassion and
kindness to those in need. Please join me in supporting disaster relief for the people
of Houston and all those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
