The Amherst College community is deeply saddened by the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Haiti in the aftermath of the recent earthquake that devastated the region. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to all those affected by this terrible tragedy. We are currently gathering information about how Amherst students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and friends are responding to the crisis and are eager to share effective ways to help those who need our support.
Communication with Haiti remains very challenging, and we will provide further information as and when we can.
