An announcement from Provost Stearns and Rose Pascarell, VP for University Life, in response to the devastation in Oklahoma:
Many of us continue to watch, listen and read about the devastating tornados and storms in Oklahoma. Although the events happened more than 1000 miles away, we know that members of our Mason community—students and alumni—live in the affected areas and our thoughts are with them and their families. Tragic events such as these weigh heavily on all of us and we often want to know what we can do to help. As recovery and relief efforts continue, please find information on how you can help at http://masongivesback.onmason.
Each of us in the Mason community deals differently with events such as this. Students, you can call Counseling and Psychological Services at (703) 993-2380 should you wish to speak to a counselor. If you are a faculty or staff member, you can contact employee relations for assistance at (703) 993-3878.
If you have health insurance through Mason, the Employee Assistance Program is part of your health care plan. For the 24/7 phone number to call, please visit http://hr.gmu.edu/emp_
