The La Verne Police Department and the FBI are continuing to investigate an apparent hate crime involving an online threat and arson that occurred on campus last Thursday and Friday, prompting the cancellation of classes.
In response to last week’s apparent hate crimes – a racist threat on social media directed at a specific group of students, followed by arson in a student’s car – several students rallied in Johnson Family Plaza to condemn these actions, while faculty discussed the appropriate response at the Faculty Senate meeting Monday.
Classes were canceled at the University of La Verne this afternoon after Campus Safety received a report of arson and theft in Parking Lot H2 beside Barkley Annex and Leo Hall this morning, following a report of a racist threat made against two students via Instagram yesterday.
Last Monday, Campus Safety alerted the entire University of La Verne community via a vague email about a lockdown affecting several buildings, students and employees – two hours after the lockdown had ended and the dangerous situation had been resolved.
Several buildings on the University of La Verne campus were on lockdown for less than a half-hour during the morning of Feb. 11, though the full campus community was only alerted to this by a brief email message two hours after the dangerous situation was resolved.
More than half of students here said they carry protection against possible physical attack when walking around campus at night, according to a recent informal survey.
The University of La Verne’s annual security report was sent to all students, faculty and staff late last month – with four reported cases of rape on the main campus in 2017.
