Statement from President Skorton regarding the earthquake in Nepal: On behalf of the entire Cornell University community, I pause during our celebration of Charter Day to express great concern for the people affected by yesterday's devastating earthquake in Nepal near its capital, Katmandu. The earthquake and its many aftershocks have caused destruction and loss of life well beyond the country's borders. The Cornell community has many personal and professional ties to the region through our faculty, students, staff, alumni, parents and friends. Our deepest sympathy goes to those who have experienced losses during this tragic event. We have reached all of our students in Nepal, and we know they are safe. We have started establishing ways to provide them with continuing support.
