The University has worked to confirm the safety of our community members in Paris following the multiple attacks in the city on Nov. 13. All 58 undergraduates who are taking courses in France this quarter at the Center in Paris have contacted center personnel and are accounted for. The University also has confirmed that the faculty members, staff and graduate students at the center are safe.
The University continues to work with area deans of students and with other University community members who have signed up with the University travel registry to assess their safety and whereabouts. We encourage all traveling faculty, students and staff to use the travel registry to facilitate contact in the event of an emergency.
The University of Chicago community shares in the grief that people around the world have expressed over the loss of life in Paris. Many members of the University community have strong ties to France, including numerous students who are French citizens. The University offers support and counseling for students through services such as the 24-hour Dean-On-Call program and the Student Counseling Service.

We will continue to provide updates on University activities related to the events in Paris.
