Responding to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma

We extend our deepest sympathies and expression of support to our students and alumni in Texas, who are being affected by Hurricane Harvey. The massive flooding in the Texas coast including Houston caused by this torrential storm is displacing thousands of people from their homes. We are reaching out to all of our students from Texas and will continue to monitor the situation there.

While we can’t always predict when or where a disaster of this magnitude is going to strike, we can always extend our support and sympathy to those who have been affected by it. On behalf of the BU Law community, we send our thoughts and prayers to all the residents of the Gulf Coast and to their friends and family members. Likewise, we extend our best wishes and deepest gratitude to first responders and rescue workers, and pray for their safety. Finally, as the long road to recovery begins, we will look for ways to assist.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, we are thinking about our alumni in the southeastern U.S. and the Caribbean islands, and reaching out to all of our students from the affected areas. Like Hurricane Harvey, this storm has caused significant destruction and displacement for many people. We hope that everyone has been able to stay safe during these storms and is able to prepare for future ones.

We are also thinking about our alumni and students from Mexico in the wake of the devastating earthquake there. We wish them safety in the aftershocks and during rebuilding and extend our deepest sympathies to all who have lost loved ones in these most recent natural disasters.
