Earthquake and recovery in Nepal

Many thousands injured. More than 7,000 dead. The earthquake in Nepal is a catastrophe. “We have students and faculty from Nepal,” says a message from several UNCG departments.” We work with Nepali refugees who have resettled in Greensboro and are supported by the university’s Center for New North Carolinians. This year’s Keker First Year Common Read, “Little Princes,” was centered on Nepal. The Triad itself is home to 300 Nepali natives and over 2,500 refugees of Nepali origin from neighboring Bhutan.” For information about UNCG departmental efforts, contact Steve Flynn, assistant director of the Global Engagement QEP Office and coordinator of Prestigious International/National Fellowships, at stflynn@uncg.edu.
