The UBC community is deeply saddened by the catastrophic earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Our thoughts are with those affected by this tragedy, especially the many faculty, staff, and students on our campuses.
The following support and information is available for faculty and staff:
- UBC Travel Benefits, which includes information on accessing emergency services outside of Canada
- UBC Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP). Human Solutions has also provided a document about Coping with the Emotional Aftereffects of the Tsunami (pdf).
- Government of Canada Travel Advisories and information to assist Canadians currently in Japan
- The Canadian Red Cross is accepting donations for the relief effort in Japan
Information for students is available on the UBC Bulletins page.
