Sunday evening we sent a message to make you aware about increased security on campus. The increased police presence is due to an unsubstantiated threat made against the campus. We remain in consultation with local law enforcement and believe that campus is safe to conduct classes and normal business operations.

We realize the lack of details may be concerning. Unfortunately, we cannot provide any additional information at this time other than to affirm that the investigation is still active.

We will communicate with campus as updates are available.
