Dear colleagues and students,

There have been many questions arising during these difficult times. We are concerned about the safety and well-being of our students as well as the ongoing quality of our educational services. To address these questions we have prepared this page with answers to frequently asked questions, a list of AAU events, discussions and articles from faculty related to Ukraine as well as links to trusted resources. The content of this page will continue to be expanded based on community feedback.

On behalf of the President’s Collegium,
