The following message was shared with the FIU community on October 8.
FIU stands with U.S. leaders, leaders from around the world and the people of Israel in condemning the Hamas terrorist attacks on Israel that have claimed hundreds of innocent lives, including children.
Panthers and the broader South Florida community have strong ties to the region and our hearts go out to students, faculty and staff directly impacted by this situation.
Please remember that FIU’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) are available to provide support to students seeking counseling during difficult times. Students may contact CAPS at 305-348-2277. Faculty and staff who seek support are encouraged to reach out to the Office of Employee Assistance at 305-348-2469.
