Hate-Filled Threat and Symbols on Academic Building Walls – 12/6/18
To the CSUN Community:
As CSUN Chief of Police Anne Glavin shared last night, CSUN Police is vigorously investigating a threat of a mass shooting and other hate-filled language and symbols written on the walls of several academic buildings. At this time, there is no indication that the threat of a mass shooting is credible, and there is no indication of an imminent threat to campus. While we cannot share specifics in order to protect the integrity of the ongoing investigation, this matter has our utmost attention. Please be assured that we are taking every step to ensure the safety of our campus community, including increasing patrols across campus and collaborating with other law enforcement partners.
Based on a threat assessment and current circumstances, classes remain in session, and finals will continue as planned. For those in our community who are particularly impacted by this threat and the hate-filled language, I encourage you to speak to your instructors or supervisor about any request for academic or work adjustment. Additionally, CSUN will be evaluating what accommodations may be needed for students as they head into finals. We will closely watch the situation and communicate with students and employees should we need to make changes relating to finals and the status of campus.
