Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of yesterday’s tragedy on the Umpqua Community College campus in Oregon. At Massasoit, we take any incident at a college particularly seriously, but today our hearts break for a fellow community college. As anyone who has spent time at a community college knows, our communities are unique and our campuses places where, we hope, our students will always be safe to learn.
Our Massasoit Police Department does an excellent job on a day-to-day basis of protecting our campuses, and at this time they are on alert for anything out of the ordinary. Though you will see a greater police presence in the coming days, I assure you that there is currently no known threat to Massasoit Community College.
President, Massasoit Community College
