We at the CCSD join the world in mourning the horrific explosion in Beirut, Lebanon on Tuesday, August 4th, 2020. With over 100 dead and thousands injured and displaced, our hearts go out to the residents of Beirut, and to all Lebanese people in our UD community and around the world. In the midst of a worldwide pandemic, this additional trauma is all the more difficult to absorb. If you are a UD student who has been impacted by this event, please reach out to the counseling center at 302-831-2141 or the UD Helpline at 831-1001 (24/7).
