Dear Alumni,

As President Frenk shared this weekend, our University of Miami community extend our heartfelt condolences to the families of all who have been impacted by the devastating earthquake in Haiti. The U has a long history of engagement with the Haitian people, and our commitment to them is strong, so we have activated “The U Responds” to gather support for relief efforts as they unfold.


I invite you – and our entire alumni community – to stand with us in our support for Haiti by making a donation today.


We are one U.
