Message from President Napolitano Regarding Northern California Fires

Many of us in the University of California community have been directly affected by the deadly wildfires that are ravaging wide swaths of Northern California. Several students, employees and their loved ones have been evacuated for their safety and many of our neighbors and friends have lost their homes. Thousands of us are breathing highly polluted air. This perilous situation will likely be with us for a while, and overall recovery may well be slow. The university stands ready to help all community members needing assistance, including through its medical facilities and campus resources such as employee assistance programs and counseling services.  Read the entire message from President Napolitano.
