Message to Students from Chancellor Cantor, Dean Wolfe, and Chief Callisto
We are writing in the wake of last night’s incident in front of Faegan’s in the Marshall Street area during which seven Syracuse University students were arrested by the Syracuse Police Department. We can report that each student is back on campus and looking forward to taking part in Commencement activities this weekend.
We take this incident seriously and have already engaged in conversations with the Syracuse Police Department. We want to share that a plan will be in place for the start of the Fall 2013 semester that will bring together a diverse and representative group of students, senior University administrators, the SU Department of Public Safety and representatives from the Syracuse Police Department, including Chief Frank Fowler. The goal of this group will be to engage in a dialogue about how we can strengthen our relationships and work together to create a safe and inclusive environment for all.
Over the summer, as we are organizing this initiative and finalizing plans for this effort, we very much would appreciate hearing your thoughts, ideas and suggestions.
Chancellor Nancy Cantor
Thomas V. Wolfe
Senior Vice President and Dean of Student Affairs
Chief Anthony Callisto
Director of Public Safety
