Those in Need

In response to the ongoing reports from employees and students who have been heavily impacted by Harvey, we have created a disaster relief program to help identify and meet the rising needs of our Aggie family.

Because of very limited funds and supplies, we ask that people only request services that they critically need. An advisory board will help determine the support for each request and allocate our finite resources.

We appreciate everyone’s understanding and patience with this process. We are doing everything we can to make sure everyone in our Aggie family is cared for. If you are a member of the Aggie community and need assistance, please let us know through one of the links below:
