(Aug. 28, 2017) -- Dear Fellow Roadrunners,
The devastation that Harvey brought to Texas this past weekend is of unparalleled dimension. It has tested, and will continue to challenge, the resolve of the Roadrunner community. Many families of our students, faculty and staff were directly impacted by this terrible storm and the severe flooding in South Central and Southeast Texas and the Houston region. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those who will spend weeks, if not months, recovering from this tragedy.
During times like this, we need to come together as the Roadrunner Family to assist those whose lives have been disrupted and to provide support to those in need. UTSA stands ready to offer assistance. Here is some important information for those who are impacted, and for everyone who wants to help. It expands on information we provided yesterday on UTSA Today (utsa.edu/today).
For students in a devastated area who are currently unable to return to UTSA:
For students currently at UTSA who have families impacted by Harvey:
Here are ways that everyone can help fellow Roadrunners affected and others across the state affected by Harvey:
UTSA is a very special community and I have seen how you come together to support each other in difficult times. We need that now more than ever.
Commitment to service is an intrinsic quality of being a Roadrunner. Thanks to all of you who have already called, emailed or otherwise expressed your commitment to helping the UTSA community and others across the state who have been displaced by this devastating storm.
Taylor Eighmy, Ph.D.
