Canadian Professor, Virginia Student Killed in Haiti

January 15, 2010

Among those killed in Haiti were Georges Anglade, a professor of geography who was one of the founders of the University of Quebec at Montreal, and Stephanie Jean-Charles, a graduate student at the University of Virginia. Jean-Charles was a native of Haiti who was visiting family members. While a number of universities are reporting that they have located faculty members or students who are in Haiti and that they are safe, some institutions are still waiting for word, or for definitive word. Lynn University announced Thursday that while eight students were on their way back to the U.S., six students were missing. The university had earlier said that only three students were missing, but found that the information on three of those believed found was inaccurate.
