Support for those Impacted by the Invasion of Ukraine

Dear AAP community —

As the invasion of Ukraine evolves and intensifies, I know there are members of our community as well as our family, friends, and loved ones who may be directly impacted by the violence, the uncertainty of geopolitical unrest, and their rippling effects. Yesterday afternoon, Cornell President Martha Pollack released a statement on the recent chain of events and information about resources available to Cornell students, faculty, and staff. The unfolding tragedy, devastation, and loss are difficult to process, and as a community, we firmly oppose violence at any scale. Our thoughts are with those who are suffering, and AAP is here to support those in need.

I encourage you to read President Pollack's statement, and should you have any questions about university resources or the different forms of support available to you at the college, please reach out to AAP Director of Student Services, Jenn Michael at
