The Office of Human Resources is here to help our employees cope with the earthquakes that struck and claimed thousands of lives in Syria and Turkey. We recognize the ongoing impact to those within Turkey and Syria and to their loved ones all across the globe and within our Princeton community. Below are resources to support our employees as they attempt to process and respond to this devastating event.
- The Employee Assistance Program (EAP), offered through Carebridge, is available to help faculty, staff, and eligible dependents 24/7 at (800) 437-0911 with concerns such as emotional impact, grief, and loss. Counseling is available virtually and in-person at the Employee Wellness Center. Refer to Carebridge’s Disaster Resources for U.S. Families for more information and support.
- Join the Pace Center on Friday, February 24, at noon, for an informal gathering of community, geared toward sharing news, community processing, and reflection around the recent tragedy in Turkey and Syria. All campus and community members are welcome to attend.
- For information about how to help the humanitarian relief response, refer to the Pace Center's website.
“The crisis in Turkey and Syria is heartbreaking, and the scale of suffering is terrible,” said President Christopher L. Eisgruber. “But the way our students, faculty, and staff come together in times of crisis — to organize, to aid and assist — is remarkable. I think we all find inspiration from their example to do what we can now and consider how we can be of service always.”
