Statement from CSUN President Dianne F. Harrison on Saugus High School Mass Shooting
On behalf of California State University, Northridge, our hearts, thoughts and sympathies are with the victims, survivors, first responders and loved ones impacted by the mass shooting that occurred Thursday at Saugus High School — a school that is closely connected to many in the CSUN community.
Please know that University Counseling Services has people available at (818) 677-2366 if you or someone you know needs assistance or support. As members of the Matador family, I ask that our campus come together and support one another during this troubling time.
This heartbreaking violence is a reminder to remain vigilant. Safety on- and off-campus is a responsibility we all share. You can find more information on active shooter preparedness on our website.
Again, our profound sympathies are with those affected by the horrific shooting in Santa Clarita.
