SCU Updates and Communications
March 7, 2022
Santa Clara University welcomes students from both Ukraine and Russia to our community and we are deeply saddened by the Russian invasion of Ukraine that has already altered our world and will continue to impact our community in unforeseen ways. This page curates updates, communication, actions you can take to support the people of Ukraine, and also support resources for all those impacted throughout our community.
At this time, Santa Clara University does not have any programs in Ukraine or Russia. We do not have students studying abroad in Ukraine or Russia, nor do we have faculty or staff currently researching or working in those countries. However, we do have Ukrainian and Russian students, faculty and staff, and others with long connections to the area.
We continue to be in communication with SCU students studying abroad in Europe and their families, as well as with our European partners and will share updates, when available.
We have reached out to our international students from Ukraine and Russia and will continue to provide support and updates.
