Swinburne University of Technology is deeply saddened by the unfolding crisis in Afghanistan and offers our thoughts and support to students, staff, alumni and their families in our Afghan community.
We acknowledge the concerns of our students, staff and alumni from Afghanistan, and are deeply concerned for the safety of those in Afghanistan.
Swinburne has contacted our Afghan students to remind them of the support services available to them at this time, including a range of wellbeing services.
We also invite all staff members who are concerned about the situation to make use of Swinburne’s wellbeing and support services available, including the Employee Assistance Program.
We understand many in the Swinburne community would like to offer practical support at this time. If you would like to provide financial assistance, we encourage donations to be made through the Australian Red Cross Afghanistan Crisis Appeal.
