Loyal to our responsibility and social justice mission, Sagrado Corazón University is operating a Solidarity Hub in our campus to support people and the communities affected by hurricane María.
We have transformed the Student Center into a collection and distribution center of emergency relief items. Sagrado has established formal alliances with different organizations to receive and distribute goods to communities and people in need. Our Center is one of the distribution centers of the Puerto Rico Recovery Fund.
ACADEMIC SOLIDARITY - FREE ONLINE COURSES WITH SAGRADO ONLINE
Sacred Heart University in Santurce, in partnership with the Faculty Resource Network, New York University (NYU) and the University of Cincinnati, has developed an online program, free of charge, for university students who were affected by Hurricane María. Students can take university courses, with a value of three (3) credits, taught by volunteer professors from recognized universities in the United States and Puerto Rico
PSYCHOLOGICAL AND SPIRITUAL HELP
Our Campus Ministry Center is offering spiritual counseling and psychological services to those needing support. In order for our students to be able to learn, they need to be physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually well.
ADVISORY REGARDING FEMA AND OTHER PUBLIC ASSISTANCE
In the weeks following the hurricane, our legal team started a series of orientations about the process for applying for FEMA's Assistance to Individuals and Families and are helping employees, students and their families complete FEMA online help requests.
CULTURAL AND EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES FOR AFFECTED COMMUNITIES
We are providing a musical and theater program where children and adults participate to mitigate stress. We have visited several communities in San Juan, specifically those surrounding our campus.
Students and alumni affected by Hurricane Maria can access information on job opportunities through an online platform (SagradoJobs), which allows the student to create his / her profile, file employment documents, summarize reference to potential employers and access to five job listings platforms.
