I am shocked at the footage of the flooding in Calgary and Southern Alberta. On behalf of the University of Alberta, I send my thoughts and wishes to those affected by this terrible disaster. I hope that everyone in the affected area is safe and has found shelter. The University of Alberta stands ready to respond to any requests from the authorities for assistance.
To ensure the safety of our staff and students, the University of Alberta’s Calgary Centre is closed today. Please visit www.calgary.ualberta.ca or @UofACC on Twitter for further updates on the Calgary Centre.
