U-M and the tragedy in France

University of Michigan and the tragedy in France

Nov. 14, 2015

The University of Michigan has now confirmed that all University of Michigan students from all three campuses, and faculty and staff who were registered as traveling in France are safe.

There are 10 students, three faculty members and one staff member in France at present.

The university is able to reach out quickly to U-M personnel traveling abroad because of the wide use of the university’s international travel registry and constant monitoring of situations throughout the world.

U-M personnel continue to monitor the situation in France and elsewhere so we can be in quick contact with other international travelers should the need arise.

The university shares in the shock of the attacks in Paris and the grief being expressed globally over the tragic loss of life in Paris. Many members of the university community have strong ties to France, including the dozens of students from France studying on our campus.

Support for students is available through CAPS, the university’s Counseling and Psychological Services unit based in the Michigan Union. Support is available to employees through the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program.
