As partners to the rural communities they serve, Wayne State and the other state colleges have already initiated temporary housing, meal options, and other needs to support current students, staff members, and community members who are in need due to the storms. 

The challenges caused by the flooding will affect many of our communities and students for quite some time, but Wayne State College and the Nebraska State Colleges will continue to support its students and neighbors.
