The devastation and loss of life stemming from the earthquakes in southern Turkey and Syria are staggering and horrific. Columbia has many ties to the region, including students, faculty, and staff with deep roots in the area and a Global Center in Istanbul. On behalf of the entire University community, I send my profound condolences to all those affected by this devastating tragedy.
