Like you, I am deeply distressed by the devastating events in Japan. The level of destruction is staggering, and the crisis is not yet over. Many of us are wondering what we can do. I appreciate your desire to help. We are working with students and others to identify the best way for Dartmouth to contribute. I hope to share more information about that soon, and in the meantime, I encourage you to support the relief organization of your choice.

Thankfully, all Dartmouth students and faculty who were in Japan at the time of the earthquake are safe and accounted for. On campus, we worked with enrolled students from affected communities before the winter term ended, and we will continue to provide any necessary support. Please note that counseling is available through the Dartmouth College Health Service, reachable at (603) 646-9442 during regular business hours.
