Daily StaffReporter
All University affiliates cur-,
rently in Japan are safe and
clear of the danger caused by a
8.9-magnitude earthquake and
tsunami that wreaked havoc on

the country's northeast coast on
Friday.
There were 19 University
undergraduate and graduate stu-
dents and two faculty members
in Japan when the earthquake
and tsunami hit, according to
University spokesman Rick
Fitzgerald. All of them were out
of harm's way, and the Universi-
ty has been in contact with each
individual, Fitzgerald said.
"None of them are in the hard-
est hit area," he said.

are overseas for University-
sponsored study abroad pro-

members were in the country.
It's unclear whether the stu-
dents or faculty plan to evacuate
the country, Fitzgerald added.
"(The University's) first pri-
ority was to make contact and
