A Brief Note About Last Week’s Fire at Pratt

The Main Building, ablaze early Friday morning.

The Main Building, ablaze early Friday morning.

Thanks to everyone who expressed concern about my office in the wake of the fire Friday morning. I was fortunate that neither my office nor the building where I teach were affected, and as far as I know, my routine will be uninterrupted.

Unfortunately, Pratt’s beautiful Main Building sustained significant damage and my condolences go out to colleagues and students who lost work in the fire. The Institute has rescheduled classes from the Main Building to other rooms (which ones, precisely, may be found by checking the LMS sites of your classes). As President Thomas Schutte directed in a message to the campuswide community this weekend, officials from the Institute will advise students who lost work in the fire on an individual basis. Health and Counseling Services office personnel are also available to those who may need support or assistance.
