Carolina responds to Japan disaster

In a message to campus, Chancellor Holden Thorp encourages students, staff and faculty to coordinate their efforts to aid the people of Japan.

“With students just returning from spring break, Carolina schools and organizations have begun to come together in response,” Thorp wrote in an email on March 14. “The best source of information of updated information will be on the Carolina Center for Public Service website, our campus link for public service and engagement. The center will collect and share information about efforts across campus.”
