President Teniente-Matson begins her tenure putting student safety and wellness first.
Today, University Police Department took into custody an unaffiliated adult who was on campus shouting anti-Asian and anti-gay slurs and verbally threatened at least one faculty member. At this time, the individual is in custody, will be charged with resisting arrest and disturbing the peace, and appeared to show signs of alcohol intoxication. I want to thank the faculty, staff, students, and our University Police for their response and allyship on the scene.
Today, I am pleased to share the Report and Recommendations from the Task Force on Community Safety and Policing. It is a comprehensive and thoughtful work, one that provides an important framework for addressing critical issues of campus safety and policing.
Consistent with the university’s ongoing focus on addressing systemic racism, I am pleased to announce the appointment of the Task Force on Community Safety and Policing.
