Counseling & Support

Students, faculty and staff who are having difficulty as a result of an international crisis are encouraged to use campus support services.

Princeton's Office of Human Resources also provides specific information about support for University employees.

Financial Contributions

International crisis response groups agree that the most effective way of helping the victims of natural disasters is through financial contributions

Students may raise funds for humanitarian causes based on existing policies. Undergraduate fundraising is overseen and supported by the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students in collaboration with other offices, including the Pace Center for Civic Engagement. Graduate student fundraising is overseen and supported by the Graduate School.

The Office of Religious Life (ORL) may also collect donations for humanitarian relief. Individuals can give to ORL and the funds will be forwarded to a designated charity.

Staff and faculty are not permitted to solicit and/or collect donations on campus or in University-related contexts for any cause.

Travel Restrictions

Princeton does not fund or sponsor student travel to countries on the U.S. Department of State travel warning list. View more travel safety information.
