Arcadia Supports Its Global Community and Ukraine

We are deeply troubled by the news and images coming from Ukraine. As a global institution, our hearts are with our students, scholars, faculty, staff, and partners, as well as all those affected by these events in the region and around the world. War and conflict devastates lives and communities for generations, and we hope for peace and justice to prevail.
