We are shocked and deeply saddened by the Russian government’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine. We are profoundly disturbed by the accounts of completely unnecessary human suffering inflicted on innocent people, and we desperately hope for rapid de-escalation and peaceful resolution of the conflict.
The ramifications of this war reverberate around Europe and the world, and there is an immediate and deeply distressing impact on some members of our community, of varying nationalities and backgrounds, with family, friends and loved ones directly caught up in the conflict. We have reached out to offer support to our students and staff affected. We hope that all students, staff, faculty, and alumni can come together and help each other at this difficult and anxious time, and that further suffering and loss of life can be diminished. Members of our community should be in touch with the Institute if they feel the need to do so.
