Our thoughts are with our neighbors in the communities to the west and north of New Orleans who have experienced flooding from the recent storms. While New Orleans was not significantly impacted by the rain, we are well versed in the devastation high water can cause.
If those in our community - faculty, staff, or students - were impacted by the flooding, please let the dean’s office know.
If you would like to assist, we recommend that you contact the American Red Cross of Louisiana. They can provide opportunities to volunteer and provide financial support to those impacted: http://www.redcross.org/local/louisiana. The Southwest Louisiana local chapter can be reached here.
