This Wake Alert announcement was emailed to students, faculty and staff on Sunday, Dec. 2:
On Sunday, law enforcement officials made Wake Forest authorities aware of an unsubstantiated threat against the campus. Law enforcement officials immediately began an investigation and continue to pursue leads to determine the validity of the threat.
There is no greater priority than the safety of our campus community. At this time, there is no evidence that this is a credible threat. However, the University and local law enforcement agree that an increased police presence is an appropriate measure and you can expect to see an elevated level of security on campus.
The University will continue to receive updates about the law enforcement investigation and share information as it becomes available.
We realize this message may be concerning. Unfortunately, we cannot provide any additional information at this time due to the ongoing nature of the investigation. After extensive consultation with law enforcement, University officials do believe maintaining normal campus operations to be safe for students, faculty and staff.
Wake Forest will staff a call center to address concerns from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, December 3. The number for the call center is 336-758-8731. Updates will be posted to wakealert.wfu.edu.
