GSS Statement on UIA 752 Tragedy

The GSS was deeply saddened to see the loss of life in the crash of Ukrainian International Airlines Flight 752 in Iran. The presence of two former UBC students among those killed, brings the events even closer to home and we offer our heartfelt sympathies to everyone affected by the tragedy.

UBC has a large and close-knit community of graduate students from Iran and many of them are involved with the GSS in our work to enhance the graduate student experience on campus. We offer our support to them at a time when domestic and international events are a cause for such concern.

The GSS’s doors are open to any graduate student facing difficult circumstances. Our peer support services provide personalized assistance, Graduate Student Financial Aid can help manage unforeseen expenses. Our Executives are always ready to hear suggestions about how we can best offer practical help.

There are also on campus support services:
