Statement from Chancellor Sharp and President Loftin

October 19, 2012 06:02 PM

From Chancellor John Sharp, Chancellor of The Texas A&M University System

"We are proud of the way university police and leadership handled the safety of not only our students, faculty and staff, but also those arriving on campus for this weekend's activities. Our officials responded quickly and efficiently, and we are immensely grateful the threat appears to be false."

From Dr. Bowen Loftin, President of Texas A&M University

"We take the safety of our campus community very seriously at Texas A&M University. When the initial threat of an explosive device was received shortly after 11 a.m. today, we took quick action and ordered the evacuation of the entire campus, which includes 50,000 students and another 10,000 faculty and staff. Let me assure you this was no small undertaking. I appreciate Aggies heeding our Code Maroon messages and evacuating the campus in a safe and orderly fashion, as well as the outstanding work of hundreds of law enforcement, emergency and other support personnel.

While the university remains closed for normal operations, we have every reason to believe that the campus is safe for events tonight and on Saturday. High-threat areas and facilities have been cleared by law enforcement personnel, to include our residence halls, dining facilities, parking facilities, the Memorial Student Center, Kyle Field, Reed Arena and the soccer complex. We are continuing to diligently search other buildings on campus and expect for this effort to continue over the weekend.

We will not tolerate anonymous threats of this kind - an unwarranted action that significantly impacted the teaching and research activities on our campus today, as well as the disruption of thousands of visitors to Texas A&M. We will work with law enforcement personnel to aggressively continue our investigation, and pursue and prosecute the perpetrator(s) of this senseless crime."

Resume Normal Operations

October 19, 2012 04:09 PM

While Texas A&M University remains closed for normal operations, students, faculty and staff will be allowed back on campus to retrieve their personal items and vehicles starting at 4pm. It has been five hours since the initial threat was received, and the investigation is still ongoing. Other areas are still being searched. The high traffic areas including the residence halls, MSC, Reed Arena, Kyle Field have been cleared. All essential personnel and those involved in this evening's activities need to report as scheduled. If employees have any questions, they should contact their supervisor for further instructions.

Transportation Services has resumed regularly scheduled transit service from the MSC and Trigon for both on and off-campus routes.
