Our universities have already opened their doors to undergrad students, but graduate students have very different needs. They will need to be hosted in individual research laboratories that have the facilities required to do their work. We would like to somehow find students in need and hook them up with the appropriate people around the country. I am sure there were many International students there-no family no money that have nowhere to go. How can we (I) set up a communication system for this?
Right now of course the focus is on saving lives. But once this aspect of the disaster is over, how can we help people get their lives back? I am a researcher at a university in the Southeast and we would like to help the displaced graduate students along the coast.
