Bucknell President Responds to Indian Ocean Disaster
Dec. 31, 2004
On behalf of the extended Bucknell University community, I would like to join everyone in expressing compassion, prayer and hope to those affected by the recent Indian Ocean disaster.
Though sited in Central Pennsylvania, the Bucknell community— with 46,000 alumni and 3,400 students and their parents and extended families — reaches around the globe. With so many people connected to the University, it is inevitable that some of us may be directly affected by a disaster of this magnitude.
We have confirmed the safety of all Bucknell students from countries affected by the tsunami as well as all students known to have been traveling in the affected areas.
As we have more specific information to share, we will do so on our campus alert website, http://www.bucknell.edu/2020
