Campus Response to Tragedy in Japan

Japanearthquake 1

JapanEarthquakeAs Stony Brook students, faculty, and staff struggle to comprehend the breadth of devastation caused by the magnitude 8.9 earthquake, tsunami, and emergency conditions surrounding the Fukushima nuclear reactors in Japan, the question we are all asking is: How can we help?

A University-organized response team is now in place, anchored with resources from the Japan Center at Stony Brook University and through the Office of the Dean of Students. A Web site has been launched that describes the support services and resources available to our students, faculty, staff, and alumni who want to get involved. Relief efforts and methods of assistance to Japan are listed on that site, which will be updated as new information becomes available.

Members of the campus community with ideas or who would like to volunteer via a University-based initiative should contact team leaders Professor Eriko Soto, Director, Pre-College Japanese Language Program ( or Assistant Dean of Students Jeffrey Barnett ( for information about how to help.
