A Message from Global Affairs to Our UC Davis Myanmar (Burma) Community

Dear UC Davis Myanmar (Burma) community,

We are following the news of the recent coup d’état in Myanmar (Burma), and are thinking of our students, scholars, faculty, staff, partners, and all those affected. We are committed to supporting our UC Davis Myanmar (Burma) community during this difficult time.

For students, please know Student Affairs has reached out to faculty and instructors to let them know of this unique circumstance. UC Davis offers additional resources available to assist students, scholars, faculty, and staff:

  • For students, scholars, faculty, and staff in Myanmar (Burma): We continue to work across multiple teams on campus to support you. As you are able and as relevant to your situation, please reach out to your professors, or department supervisors, and Services for International Students and Scholars (SISS) for support.
  • For students in the U.S.: You may find that talking to someone is helpful in processing everything you are going through. Make an appointment through Student Health and Counseling Services, which provides services to all registered students in the U.S.
  • For scholars, faculty, and staff in the U.S.: The Academic and Staff Assistance Program (ASAP) offers confidential and cost-free assessment, counseling, consultation, and referral services to all UC Davis and UC Davis Health faculty, staff, and families. For scholars located in Davis, please call (530) 752-2727 for an appointment. For scholars in Sacramento, please call (916) 734-2727 for an appointment.

All international students and scholars can contact Services for International Students and Scholars (SISS) within Global Affairs by emailing siss@ucdavis.edu, and you can find your advisor’s contact information on the SISS website.

We stand with you in community during this uncertain time.
