Dear NCCU Community,

I write to each of you as North Carolina, as well as communities in our neighboring states, continue to experience the devastating impact of Hurricane Florence. I extend my heartfelt thoughts and prayers on behalf of the administration to all students, faculty, staff and alumni whose families have been touched in some way by this unprecedented natural disaster. I have been in communication with University of North Carolina System President Margaret Spellings. Many of our sister UNC institutions have been directly impacted by the hurricane, and I have expressed the support of our Eagle family directly to their chancellors.

Let us continue to be vigilant as the effects of this dangerous storm continue to touch our state, South Carolina and Virginia. Most importantly, please keep those who have lost their lives or continue to be in the direct path of the heavy rains and strong winds in your thoughts and prayers, as well. North Carolinians are resilient; we will recover and rebuild.

In Truth and Service,

Johnson O. Akinleye, Ph.D.
