After a new threat was discovered on the California State University, Northridge, campus, CSUN President Dianne F. Harrison, Ph.D., released a statement regarding final exams scheduled for Dec. 12. The following is the statement from Dr. Harrison:

To the Campus Community,
Last night, a hand-written note was discovered in Redwood Hall that threatened violence on December 12 at CSUN and Northridge Academy High School. CSUN Police and the Los Angeles Police Department have been investigating throughout the night and into this morning. Additional police from partner agencies along with CSUN Police are patrolling campus and will continue to do so. This new threat follows a threat of a mass shooting and racist, Anti-Semitic language and symbols written on the walls of academic buildings last week ( https://www.csun.edu/…/hate-filled-threat-and-symbols-acade…).

We recognize that these threats have created an environment where students and other members of our campus community fear for their safety. We are instructing all faculty who have examinations on December 12 to provide alternative examination options for their students that would not require students to be physically present on campus Wednesday. Faculty will be communicating specifics with students.
The campus will remain open on Wednesday based on the threat assessment and current information gathered by law enforcement. Any employees who are affected are encouraged to contact their supervisor. Should the circumstances change, the status of the December 12th finals and campus services will be updated.

Law enforcement officials continue to believe that there is no imminent threat to campus. We are working to bring any perpetrators of these cowardly acts to justice. Anyone with any information should contact CSUN Police immediately at 911 or 818-677-2111.

To reiterate, faculty who have examinations on December 12 have been directed to provide alternative examination options for their students that would not require students to be physically present on campus Wednesday. We will communicate updates as information becomes available.

Sincerely,
Dianne F. Harrison, Ph.D.
President
