A message from President Helen Drinan '75LS ,'78SM:

"We at Simmons College send our thoughts and deepest prayers to the people of Japan, and all those affected by the catastrophic earthquake and tsunami. The images coming over the news are heartbreaking. Please know the entire Simmons community stands in sorrow and solidarity with you.

We feel fortunate that none our students were studying in the areas affected by the disaster. The Office of Student Life has been reaching out to students we know who have family or friends living in Japan, to offer any possible support and assistance.

We also are reaching out to our participants from the School of Management's Japanese Women's Leadership Initiative Forum program, which takes place in Japan. We are deeply concerned because some may be in the area with no power. We will keep checking and will let you know as soon as we receive more information."
