Yesterday . . . 

. . . we were saddened to learn of the violence that occurred off-campus near Youngstown State University early Sunday morning, which resulted in multiple injuries and the death of a student. I have extended our condolences to YSU President Cynthia Anderson, to the friends and family of the victims, and to the entire YSU community. Members of our administrative team have contacted their counterparts at YSU to offer their assistance.

This incident serves as a sobering reminder that no community is immune from tragedy, and that each of us must do our part in the prevention of such occurrences.

At The University of Akron, our police department makes door-to-door visits in adjacent neighborhoods to talk with student renters about their responsibilities as party hosts. We have established the Office of Off-Campus Student Services, which educates student renters about safe living in a metropolitan environment. Further, that office and our police department provide a service that allows you to send confidential tips to the police. And our safety officers, Student Affairs professionals and others work daily to maintain open lines of communication with students.

Yet, as our nation often has witnessed, it is the timely actions of individuals that prevent or minimize incidents of senseless violence. If you feel that a situation has become volatile or threatening, do the responsible thing and contact an officer, a faculty member or a staff member. 

Maintaining a secure campus is a task we must all share.

With every good wish,

Sincerely,

 

Luis M. Proenza
President
The University of Akron
