August 28, 2017

Dear Students:

Your fellow members of the UVA community are concerned about the devastation from Hurricane Harvey and thus I am writing you since our records show your hometown is in Texas. If you need assistance due to the impact of the storm on you or your family, please get in touch with my office by calling 434-924-7133 or emailing

News reports indicate this has been one of the worst storms in recent history, and it will take some time to assess the full extent of damage. If you find now or in the coming days that the storm has affected you personally, emotionally, or financially, please let us know so we can determine what University resources might be available to you.

In the meantime, please know we are thinking of you and your loved ones. We remain hopeful everyone who has felt the impact of this disaster will recover as soon as possible.
