Main Question or Discussion Point

I know this isn't of particular interest to most people, but I figured I would help spread the information for those who might find it applicable for friends or loved ones.

Florida Institute of Technology (www.fit.edu) is also taking in students from: Tulane, Loyola, Xavier, Southern, Dillard and UNO, and others.

I'm just catching up on a few weeks' worth of threads here, so sorry to be so late joining this one. On a related note, the scientific community is also pulling together to try to find labs for grad students, post-docs and other research professionals. I've already gotten emailings around here requesting that anyone with the ability to fund someone for what could potentially be 6 months to two years notify the university administration so they can add those names to find matches. Some of the scientific societies I'm a member of are also helping coordinate the effort to provide assistance to our colleagues at Tulane.

A lot of schools have taken in students. University of Michigan took in 46 or 49, and West Virginia University took in a bunch (all undergrads; last I heard, they were seeing if they could find room for one or two in the med school too, but apparently, Texas has accomodated a lot of the med students). You'd probably be hard-pressed to find a university that didn't open their doors to at least a few students.

I just met a Tulane student today, he just got in so I guess Geogria Tech is accepting students as well. http://www.admissions.gatech.edu/hdl/article/katrina.asp [Broken]

..and what societies would that be?
As Laura1013 points out, there are other institutions affected besides Tulane... whose campus, by the way, was relatively safe compared to the others.

University of Florida - http://www.registrar.ufl.edu/katrina.html [Broken]

I read an article in the local newspaper that around 50 or so students were taken in by UF.

What? Me? The hurricane didn't even hit close to our area. UF is in north-central Florida, far north from where it came across (southern Florida and Everglades area).

Though if the hurricane shifted by around 45 degrees in a northerly fashion, then it would be a slightly different story.

Oh, good. I wasn't sure exactly where you were in Florida and I was just worried. (because I am just a silly worry-wort and all!!) :smile: We've been very busy at UCLA enrolling displaced Katrina victims this week.

Here's a message board set up to help scientists at all affected institutions find placement. Scientists in need can post messages of support needed and scientists with resources to share can post messages of support offered. Everything from post-doc/grad student positions to sharing lab space and reagents to housing support are being offered there. If you know any scientist from an affected institution, please let them know if this resource for finding people with matching interests who have research resources to share. On their Quick Links page, there is a list of the organizations, agencies and institutions offering assistance as well.
