University Expresses Sympathy to Earthquake, Tsunami Victims

March 13, 2011 - Campus Bulletin

Some members of the University of Guelph community have been directly or indirectly affected by the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The U of G community joins others in the world in mourning the tremendous loss of human life.

"On behalf of the entire University, I would like to extend heartfelt condolences to everyone touched by this catastrophe,” says president Alastair Summerlee.

“Our thoughts are with the families whose loved ones are still missing, with those who have lost their homes, and with the people bringing aid and support. It is our hope that the massive groundswell of compassion will
reach those most in need as rapidly as possible.”

It is important for U of G faculty, staff, students and alumni to keep their colleagues at the University informed about members of our community who may be affected by recent events or who are involved with relief initiatives.
