The nation has watched in horror the unspeakable violence perpetrated by the terrorist organization Hamas on Israel and the eruption of war in Gaza and other parts of Israel. The conflict has left innocent Israelis, 巴勒斯坦人, and expats visiting or working in that part of the Middle East displaced, 受伤的, and dead – and the conflict continues.
暴力, though far from our campuses and neighborhoods in 圣安东尼奥, has had an impact on our students and neighbors. We are working to connect with any of our ACD family who has ties to the region to ensure they are supported as they deal with loss and uncertainty. International students and scholars can contact the Office of International Programs or your designated school officer for more guidance.
For those who are simply trying to process the hate, 破坏, and death in the aftermath of each violent attack, we look toward our mission to empower our diverse communities for success. We believe our greatest comfort and strength will come in the form of communities coming together and humanitarian efforts.
