Tragedy in India

From
Robyn S. Hadley, UVA Student Affairs, and Stephen D. Mull, UVA Global Affairs

Dear Members of UVA’s Indian Community:

We are writing to express our heartfelt support to all students, faculty, staff, and community members who are from Gujarat or have family, friends, and associates there. The news of the bridge collapse in Morbi leading to a large number of deaths and injuries is deeply distressing.

We recognize that these events can have an impact on your daily life.Please know that we are committed to supporting you through this challenging time.

For students, members of our Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) team are here to help you. You can schedule an initial appointment with a counselor by calling 434-243-5150 or by going to HealthyHoos. CAPS is also available on an emergency after-hours basis by calling this same number. TimelyCare – a 24/7 virtual, wraparound mental health care service – is also available to students if you should need support.

Our Faculty and Employee Assistance Program (FEAP) is also open and available to provide support to our UVA Faculty and Staff.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to either of our offices with any questions or concerns through these email addresses – vpsa@virginia.edu and/or globalaffairs@virginia.edu

Sincerely,

Robyn S. Hadley
Vice President and Dean of Students
