Statement by President Regina Peruggi on earthquake in Chile
I am deeply saddened about the devastatingly powerful 8.8 earthquake that struck Chile and claimed hundreds of lives. We extend our deepest condolences to the people of Chile and the people around the world, especially our students, faculty and staff who have been affected by this catastrophic event.
It is obvious that the impact of this powerful earthquake has been extremely severe and the people of Chile will need not only our prayers but our assistance. I am, therefore, asking the Kingsborough community to assist in whatever way we can.
As we did for the earthquake that struck Haiti, we are monitoring the situation and exploring the best way we can assist. We will get back to you with information regarding the most effective way our community can help the people of Chile.
