Statement on the Turkey/Syria Earthquake

Dear Students,

As a Students' Union and Officers Team, we express our solidarity with those affected by the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, as well as with the students who have been directly impacted. The devastating earthquakes have killed thousands of people and rendered millions homeless. It is a precarious position, and we want our Turkish and Syrian students to know that we are with them and for them.

We want to reassure our students that we will do our best to reach out to the community and offer the best possible support. We will also closely work with the University to ensure students who have been directly affected receive the support they need.
