Summit on UC Relief to Haiti
April 15, 2010
To the Campus Community:
In response to a desire by faculty, students and staff on all 10 UC campuses to find ways that our university can support the rebuilding of Haiti¸ a group of UC students has taken the initiative to organize a "UC Haiti" Summit. As the UC system, we have much talent and expertise in many different fields needed to assist the Haitian people in the long process of rebuilding their earthquake-devastated country. We are pleased to support our students’ efforts in putting together this summit.
A series of meetings is being planned for April 24, 2010, at the UCSF Mission Bay campus. The day will involve discussion among UC students, faculty and staff to identify possible projects, explore collaborations and develop a plan of action.
Members of the UC community have a long and proud history of public service, and the long-term rebuilding of Haiti is an effort in which our faculty, staff and students may wish to contribute their talent, creativity and expertise.
