MILWAUKEE— As the Russian military continues to attack Ukraine this week, students, faculty and staff at Concordia University Wisconsin in Mequon are keeping a very close eye on the Ukrainian capital city of Kyiv.

"About 20 years ago, our president at the time started a university in Ukraine," Dr. Brian Curry, the head of international education at Concordia University Wisconsin, said. "It's been heart-wrenching these last couple days to see what's going on. We've been very fortunate that technology has provided us a way for them to communicate, so we've been in communication and have heard that our students, faculty and staff over there, so far, are doing well or as well as could be expected."

Curry said there are roughly 600 students that are always in Ukraine at Ukrainian-American Concordia University, with an ever-changing number of students from Concordia University Wisconsin who may travel abroad for a semester at a time.

"The people we've been working with and the students have just been fantastic," Curry added. "Their resilience— I'm amazed at it."
