A message from President Shoureshi on today's tragic incident on campus

May 25, 2018

Dear PSU community:

I want to express my concern and personal condolences to those who were injured this morning on campus. All of us are shocked and saddened by this serious incident.

Earlier today, we sent a message identifying campus support and resources for students, faculty and staff who need them. I want to take a moment, however, to thank the first responders, including staff and students, who came to the aid of those who were injured.

There is much we do not yet know about this incident, but we are working closely with the Portland Police and Portland Fire bureaus to assist in their investigation. Safety is our No. 1 concern at PSU. 

I know I speak for all at Portland State when I say that our hearts are with the victims and their families as we hope for their full recovery.
