To the Campus Community:

The scale of devastation and heartache wrought by the earthquake in Haiti is almost too tragic to comprehend. And while we may feel helpless, there are, in fact, many ways for the Michigan community to make a difference in the lives of Haitians.

No gesture is too small, and I encourage you to support a charitable organization that is responding to this disaster. Thank you.

Mary Sue Coleman
President
