Typhoon Haiyan Aid Efforts

Many members of the University of San Diego community have asked how they can help support the aid effort in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, which hit the central Philippines over the weekend. In the coming days, donation containers will be available in the Center for Awareness, Service and Action (CASA), SLP #320; the Center for Community Service Learning (CSL), Maher #218; and University Ministry, UC # 238. Please consider making a donation to help Catholic Relief Services (CRS) as they help those affected by this tragedy.

Our Filipino Ugnayan Student Organization (FUSO) and local USD FUSO alumni are in the process of planning a major fundraising event in the coming weeks.

If you know a student in need of assistance from our Counseling Center, please call (619) 260-4655, or encourage students to visit their offices in Serra Hall #300. If you are an employee and would like to access counseling services through the Employee Assistance Program, please call (800) 342-8111, or visit their website at:
