Middlesex Community College is responding to the natural disaster in Japan by setting up support and information centers for students, staff, faculty and community members on both the Lowell and Bedford Campus.
This morning the college posted details on its blog in the following post.
Tsunami Information Center
The devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan today will directly and indirectly affect millions of people. Middlesex Community College is especially concerned about members of our extended campus community whose family and friends are affected by this disaster.
Support services will be offered on both our Lowell and Bedford campuses. In Lowell, please visit the city campus cafeteria at 33 Kearney Square, and in Bedford, please visit the Dean of Student’s Office (Building 9) on Springs Road. All students, staff, faculty and community members are welcome.
The centers will officially open today at 2:00 for any students, faculty/staff, and community members who wish to discuss the personal, local, and global effects of this devastating event. Crisis counselors are on hand, and we are providing internet access for anyone looking to track information via the worldwide web. Please join us and invite members of your extended community to join us as well.
In the meantime, please use this blog to communicate with us your personal experiences, as well as to offer prayers or support for those affected by this devastating tragedy.
