Message from President Berkey on the Tragedy in Japan

WPI joins the global community in mourning the disaster that took place in Japan last week

To Members of the WPI Community,

As we start D-Term today, our hearts are heavy with sadness and worry about the disaster in Japan that took place last week.  As more information becomes available, we see that the full extent of death, destruction, and longer-term danger will not be known for some time to come.  The WPI community is a wide network, and certainly some of our members are feeling this tragedy more directly than some others, but there can be no question that we are all touched and humbled.  Our hearts go out to those suffering so much loss.

President Berkey
