Statement on Nepal Earthquake by CSUN President Dianne F. Harrison
From the entire California State University, Northridge community, our hearts go out to the people of Nepal and those affected by this weekend’s earthquake and aftershocks. We know all too well the devastation, pain and heartbreak an earthquake can cause. The Red Cross, UNICEF and others are already on the ground, helping the survivors. These groups are taking donations to support their efforts. CSUN has reached out to our current Nepalese students to offer assistance in any way that we can.
When CSUN faced its own disaster in 1994, friends and strangers alike supported us in our time of need. As citizens of the world, I urge the campus to consider ways to help. While the coming days and weeks will be difficult, the earth will calm, and the rebuilding will begin. Just as CSUN rose from a seemingly insurmountable blow, the people of Nepal and the surrounding region will rise once more.
