This is what I've been able to find so far about local universities organizing relief efforts. If anyone out there finds something I've missed, please forward the information to me at incertusblog-at-gmail-dot-com.

Florida Atlantic University is working with student organizations such as Konbit Kreyol and the Caribbean Student Association with support from Student Government, to collect donations for relief efforts. Donations of canned food, non-perishable items and clothing may be made on the Breezeway of the Boca Raton campus from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the remainder of this week. All donations will go directly to Haiti for disaster relief. Links if they become available.

The University of Miami is working with the United Way and the medical school already has a presence in Haiti. Five doctors are on-site and casualties could be flown back to Florida for treatment.

Florida International University recommends donations be made to the Red Cross, and has made resources available to their students and faculty who have been affected by the earthquake.

That's all I have for now. I'm sure students at Broward College, Nova Southeastern, and the other local colleges are making relief plans, but I couldn't find anything on the university websites.
