Important Message to Students from Dean Groves

April 2, 2018

Dear Students:

Late this afternoon, we were alerted to viral social media posts appearing to originate in the United Kingdom, urging acts of violence against Muslim individuals on April 3rd. Although we are aware of no connection to a specific threat targeting members of the University community, we are informed that fliers supporting this virulent campaign of hate have been reported at other American colleges and universities. This has caused understandable concern on the part of members of our community. University Police are closely monitoring this situation.
