Message of Support for U-M Community Members Affected by the Earthquake in Türkiye and Syria

The staff of the International Center would like to express our sympathy and concern for U-M international students, scholars, and employees from Türkiye and Syria as the suffering due to the disastrous earthquake continues.   We wish you, your family, and friends all the best at this unfortunate time.

We would also like to remind students that Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is available to help you find support during this stressful time.  Support for U-M employees is available from Faculty and Staff Counseling and Consultation Office (FASCCO) or for Michigan Medicine employees, from the Michigan Medicine Office of Counseling and Workplace Resilience.

If you have been directly affected by these recent events and need assistance from the University, please contact the International Center at or (734) 764-9310. The Dean of Students Office is also available to individually support students and help manage any disruptions to their Michigan experience.
