The Ermitage community is saddened by the tragic events that are currently taking place in Ukraine. Our thoughts go out to those who are suffering due to this conflict and to all those who are affected by it.
Ermitage strives to educate the world citizens of the future who will be responsible for ensuring that this type of horrific event does not re-occur ever again. We must use this moment to help our students think deeply about the values that should guide their actions: respect for others, a commitment to helping, and to promoting fellowship. In the upcoming days, Ermitage will be putting in place solidarity initiatives to help those who have been forced to flee their homes to find refuge far from the dangers and harm threatening them and their families.
