UDC News

Message from USDC President Allen Sessoms

Dear University System Community:
Like many of you, I was shocked to see the news coverage of the devastating earthquake in Haiti.  My thoughts are with the families of the victims and with the first responders who are right now risking their lives in order to save scores of people still trapped in the rubble.
I have asked Ambassador Denis Antoine, UDC’s Director of International Programs, to liaison with the Haitian embassy to assess the situation there and to learn what we can do to help.
In the meantime, I would invite you to access the American Red Cross’ website: www.redcross.org – to make a donation to the relief effort and to discover ways in which you might volunteer.
Thank you,
Allen L. Sessoms
