This is to advise you that law enforcement agencies are investigating threats of violence against the PSU community made by Henry Liu, a graduate student at Portland State University.

Mr. Liu has not been charged with a crime, and he and his family have been cooperating with officials regarding the resolution of this matter.  Given the circumstances, however, federal law requires that we issue this notification.

Mr. Liu has been excluded from Portland State University and prohibited from coming to campus or any PSU facility.  Accordingly, we are providing the following description and photograph of Mr. Liu: He is 6 ft, 250 lbs, with brown eyes and black hair.

If you see Mr. Liu on campus, or if you have any significant concerns about your immediate personal safety, please notify law enforcement officials by calling 911.

University Administration, the Portland Police Bureau and Campus Public Safety are continuing to monitor the situation and do not believe that the normal operations of the University should be interrupted at this time.
