Coming home
The end of a five-week intensive graduate course in IU SPEA's Executive Education program, capped by a week in Washington, D.C., ended suddenly for SPEA's Jim Buher and David Reese Tuesday morning. The two were accompanying students from Crane (Ind.) Naval Surface Warfare Center to a presentation at the Pentagon when a hijacked plane struck the building. The group escaped unharmed, navigating through darkness, dust and debris. They returned to Indiana by bus Wednesday night.

Seeking emotional help
If you or a colleague are having a particularly difficult time with the emotional aftershock of the terrorist hijackings, consider contacting the IU Emergency Assistance Program. Trained professional counselors are available by telephone 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to support full-time appointed faculty and staff, as well as household members, on all campuses of Indiana University. The service is without cost and there are referral options to counselors located close to individual campuses.
