Statement on Thousand Oaks Massacre
On behalf of California State University, Northridge, our hearts and thoughts are with the victims, survivors, first responders and loved ones affected by the horrific massacre that occurred in Thousand Oaks last night. We have learned that the reported shooter is a former CSUN student, who last attended in 2016.
I know that many in the community have been impacted by this terrible tragedy. I ask that faculty and supervisors be supportive and considerate of anyone who has been touched by this tragedy. Also, please know that University Counseling Services has people available at (818) 677-2366 if you or someone you know need assistance or support. As members of the Matador family, I ask that our campus come together and support one another during this troubling time. Please check CSUN.edu for updates as more information becomes available.
In accordance with a proclamation issued by the White House, I have directed that U.S. flags on campus fly at half staff until sunset, Nov. 10, in honor of the victims of this senseless tragedy.
Again, I share my deepest condolences and sympathies with those affected by this horrific massacre.
