Help China Earthquake and Myanmar Cyclone Relief Efforts

This announcement was originally posted on the UCOP website.

Many people in the University of California community have expressed an interest in contributing to relief efforts assisting those affected by the recent devastating earthquake in China and the Myanmar cyclone.

UC has a partner institution, Sichuan University, located in the southwestern China region where the deadly May 12 earthquake occurred. UC's collaboration with Sichuan University is part of its "10 + 10" academic partnership between the 10 UC campuses and 10 top universities in China. The goal of 10 + 10 is to strengthen and more strategically focus UC's research and educational interactions, including expanded faculty exchange and student exchange.

Below are a few links to organizations providing financial relief for victims of the Myanmar cyclone and China earthquake, including efforts associated with UC's partner institutions.
