Emergency Guidelines for the Campus Community

University Policy on Pranks and Hoaxes

Pranks or hoaxes involving false threats of Anthrax exposure or other other forms of terrorism disrupt lives, create serious safety concerns, and tax valuable University and community resources.  They create illegitimate alarm in a time of legitimate concern.  The University and law enforcement authorities take all such actions very seriously.  The University has adopted a "zero tolerance" policy and will aggressively investigate any such incidents.  Any individual found responsible for such acts will be subject to University disciplinary action, up to and including separation from the University, and prosecution under State and Federal law.
