A message of support from Barry Gerhart, interim vice provost and dean, International Division, following the earthquake in Syria and Turkey.
UW–Madison is a global community and we also know that many of our students, faculty, staff and alumni have personal connections to the region — some call it home or have family, friends, and colleagues there. Our deepest sympathies go to all those who are directly or indirectly affected.
