Message On Ukraine
From HCC's vice president of Academic and Student Affairs
Dear HCC Community,
The crisis in Ukraine is very upsetting. Our HCC community includes individuals from Ukraine at our main campus as well as at our Ludlow Area Adult Learning Center, and through our Accelerated Career English (ACE) program, with family members still living there. No doubt, our diverse community of learners is being impacted in countless ways.
Let us all hope for the safety and welfare of those in harm's way, and provide comfort to anyone who needs it. Witnessing what is unfolding in Eastern Europe is difficult, especially at a time when communities all over the world have been worn down by the pandemic. If you or someone you know needs support, I encourage you to seek counseling and assistance:
- For our students, please click here to connect with support services provided through our partnership with CHD.
- For our employees, AllOne Health, Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is available to you and can be accessed by clicking here and selecting the Benefits drop-down.
In the coming days and weeks, let us look out for one another. The economic disruptions that may soon follow make our Thrive Student Resource Center, President's Student Emergency Fund, and other student resources all the more critical to share with your students. For everyone in our HCC community, especially those who have family and friends in the region of Ukraine, please know that we are here to support you.
Sharale W. Mathis, Ed.D.
Vice President, Academic and Student Affairs
