Dear Iranian students and faculty members,
Like you, the IRAIS executive board members have been following the recent news from Iran and are concerned to learn about the civil unrest, violence, and disrupted communications in the aftermath of the murder of #Mahsa_Amini at the Iranian Morality Police center in Tehran. We understand that it has been challenging to communicate with our families and friends back home.
Please, know that we are here to support you in any capacity that we can. We hope that people in our country will be resilient and overcome the tragedy and hardship.
We encourage you to remain connected to one another and reach out to us during these difficult times. We are available to meet with you regarding your concerns, offer support, and help you find resources to navigate the impact on your educational achievements, or just to listen.
Additionally, be aware that your campus has resources such as International Student and Scholar Advisors, Students Health and Wellbeing Services, and the office of the Dean of Students.
