Storm Victims Asked To Provide Information To Assist Relief Efforts

State officials have asked The University of Iowa to assist them in post-tornado recovery efforts by obtaining information from students, staff and faculty who suffered damage and/or losses from the tornado, including damage or losses related to homes, apartments, automobiles, household goods and personal items. 

Any UI student, faculty member or staff member living in a household that experienced damage and/or losses should go to the following web address to complete the short survey form by Friday, May 5:

The information gathered via the survey, which includes summer contact information for those who suffered damage and/or losses from the tornado, will be shared with university, state, and/or federal officials working on the recovery efforts. The ability of agencies and officials to deliver assistance that might be available may be impeded if contact information is not provided.

In an e-mail message to students, faculty and staff in which he conveyed this request, UI Executive Vice President and Provost Michael J. Hogan noted his concern for those who were adversely affected by the tornado and his deep appreciation for those who have generously contributed their time and resources to the recovery effort. "I continue to be inspired by the resilience and generosity of this community," he wrote.

Questions regarding the request for information may be directed to Lisa Troyer in the Office of the Provost, 319-335-1878,
