Dear Colleagues:

On behalf of the Department of Urban Planning and Environmental Policy (UPEP), Texas Southern University, thank you for your outpouring of concern for our well-being as we dealt with Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath. All UPEP faculty members are well and experienced little or no property damage. For some of our students, however, their experience reflects much of what you've seen in the national media.

The University has set up a "TSU-Cares" for students and employees impacted by the storm. Should you desire to make a donation, please access the following link:

The University (as well as the City of Houston) began normal operations Tuesday, September 5, 2017. And, there is no doubt that UPEP will be engaged in the long-term policy and recovery efforts in the neighborhoods of our city and region. Some of you have already contacted us wanting to know how you might be able to help, Please know that as the need arises, we will definitely call on you.

Thank you again for your concerns. Sincerely,

Sheri L Smith, PhD, AICP

Interim Department Chair
Urban Planning and Environmental Policy Department Texas Southern University
