Dirks: ‘Our thoughts are with the people of the Philippines’

November 15, 2013

In response to the devastation in the Philippines caused by Typhoon Haiyan, UC Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks sent out this message on Tuesday, Nov. 12:

To Berkeley faculty, staff, students and alumni:

Today our thoughts are with the people of the Philippines as they struggle to cope with the terrible devastation wrought by Typhoon Haiyan, one of the most powerful cyclones ever recorded.

We are also reminded that our campus is a global community that includes students, faculty, staff, scholars, alumni and friends with ties to the Philippines. We are currently trying to gather information about the effects of this disaster on members of our campus community so that we are in position to provide them support and resources during these difficult days. We will also be ready to support efforts by faculty, student and/or staff associations with an interest in supporting aid and relief activities. Together, we will do all we can to help those in need.
