This semester, we have witnessed ecological disasters throughout the Americas. If you want to help the people of Mexico and Puerto Rico recover from the recent earthquake and hurricanes, the Office of Multicultural Services has prepared a list of recommended agencies to support. It also links to student-led efforts like #HoosforPuertoRico.

Students who have been affected or have ties to those in Mexico and Puerto Rico have been contacted by the Vice President of Student Affairs and the Dean of Students Office in case they require assistance. If you need assistance due to the impact of the storm on you, your family, or loved ones, please get in touch with ODOS by calling 434-924-7133 or emailing We can also help facilitate connections with staff in Counseling and Psychological Services, Student Financial Services, and other University offices.
