Department of Public Safety

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,
Federal authorities have  notified colleges and universities in our region  that threats of violence have been made against "an unspecified university near Philadelphia". The information includes a specific date of Monday, Oct. 5, 2015. Authorities have no other knowledge of a specific threat.
In response, the University has notified the Radnor Police Department and is working in conjunction with them to enhance protection of the campus. In addition, the Public Safety Department has increased security patrols. We ask that you remain aware of your surroundings and report any suspicious activity or behavior to the Department of Public Safety at 610-519-4444.
