Ukraine: Message of Support from Dean McDaniel

After a very trying two years, I know we are all weary of distressing news. However, the recent events taking place in Ukraine are especially harrowing. I want to offer support to any College of Nursing students, faculty, staff, or alumni who have connections to Ukraine or who might find the situation distressing. Please know that we mourn the loss of any life and continue to strive to be an environment of inclusivity and belonging. If you or someone you know would like to be connected to supportive assistance, please contact me or any of the following resources:

The UF Care team –  (352) 294-2273

Student Counseling and Wellness Center   (352) 392-1575

Employee Assistance Program   (833) 306-0103

Alachua County Crisis Center (352) 264-6789. 

If you are moved to support the Ukrainian people during this time, I would encourage you to research reputable organizations online.
