Grant Us Peace: Daily Interfaith Prayer

We’re holding a short daily interfaith gathering on the Barcelona campus before a candle which will remain lit for the duration of the conflict. Employees or students who are most affected by the conflict may share their experiences, a moment of silence is held, and the hymn Dona Nobis Pacem is sung.

Points of Collection & Connection: Humanitarian Aid

We have set up collection points for non-perishable food and medical supplies on the Barcelona and Madrid campuses. Goods collected will be donated to groups working to ameliorate the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine and neighboring countries.

If you’re an alum and have an initiative you would like included in this page, please get in touch.
