Dear Fielding Community, 

We extend the heartfelt sympathies from the entire Fielding Graduate University community to all those who are suffering in the wake of last Monday’s powerful earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria. As the impact of this quake continues to unfold, we expect the casualties to rise.  

As a global university with personal and professional connections to the region through our students, faculty, alums, and staff, we recognize that many in our community are feeling anguish and despair in the face of this disaster. 

Please be reminded that your support and acts of care will be greatly appreciated to those who are deeply and intimately connected to the region. As a global community committed to social and ecological justice, we resolve to care for one another and contribute to our collective recovery and rebuilding in the days to come. 

If there is a need for additional assistance at this time, please reach out to SOAR or contact the Vice President of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Allison Davis-White Eyes, Ph.D., at 

Dr. Davis-White Eyes is holding space for individuals to connect on Thursday, Feb. 23 at 4 p.m. PST | 7 p.m. EST. You may register at 



President Katrina S. Rogers, Ph.D.
