Statement by President Regina Peruggi on earthquake in Haiti
I am deeply saddened about the news of a powerful 7.0 earthquake that has struck Haiti. Our hearts go out to the people of Haiti and the people around the world, especially our students, faculty and staff who have been affected by this devastating tragedy.
It is anticipated that the impact of such a powerful earthquake will be severe and the people of Haiti will need not only our prayers but our assistance. I am, therefore, asking the Kingsborough community to prepare to render aid in whatever way we can.
We are monitoring the situation and exploring the best way to assist. We will get back to you with information regarding the most effective way our community can help.
