Many of you have received a message regarding campus closure on Friday, September 10, 2021. I want to assure you that we take the safety of you, our students, and our employees very seriously. Whenever there is any potential threat to safety, we lean on the side of caution. The incident on Friday was no different. When a potential threat to safety was reported to us, we closed the campus, informed law enforcement, locked down the buildings, and remained vigilant. Fortunately, with a prompt response from law enforcement, the situation ended relatively quickly and without incident. Once we received the “all clear” signal late in the evening, the campus community was notified and normal activities resumed on Saturday, September 11, 2021.
I encourage you to visit the campus as you would do under normal circumstances. Situations that bring uncertainty and require an urgent response are unavoidable in life, however, when everyone remains vigilant, we are prepared to respond. We will continue to do everything in our power to provide you with a safe learning environment.
