Dear Members of the Brandeis Community,

In recent days, the situation in Ukraine has continued to deteriorate, and we acknowledge the deep concern and uncertainty members of our community may be experiencing during this difficult time. Please know that there are resources available at the university that can provide support, including the Brandeis Counseling Center. Additionally, Brandeis employees can seek assistance from the Employee Assistance Program. For more information, visit the Support at Brandeis website to review a comprehensive list of services available.

We also write to share information about the following events, panels, and opportunities to gather with the Brandeis community in dialogue about the invasion of Ukraine and in solidarity for peace. Beyond the events listed below, keep an eye on the Brandeis Campus Calendar for more events to come. As a university community, these events offer us the opportunity to work toward a better understanding of the crisis unfolding in the region as we all collectively hope for a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
