Dear Emory community:

There has been an outpouring of interest in finding ways for Emory to assist the victims of Hurricane Katrina, which has brought such devastation and misery to the Gulf Coast. Many of you, indeed, have family members and friends whose lives have been terribly disrupted, perhaps even lost, in this disaster. Our colleagues at Tulane, Dillard, Loyola and other institutions will be rebuilding for a long time to come. We are moving on several fronts to assess what we might do as a caring community. The Student Government Association, members of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center, and President’s Cabinet members are conferring to determine the best avenues to take in addressing the needs on the Gulf Coast. As soon as we are able to identify specific ways for Emory to help, we will communicate those to you. In the meantime, I know that all of you join me in holding in our thoughts and prayers those who are suffering.


President Jim Wagner
