Dear HSU Community,
I am writing concerning the shooting which took place at the Arcata Downtown Plaza in the early morning hours of Saturday, September 9. As a campus, we are always concerned about the health and welfare of our community. We want to give you an opportunity to meet and share your thoughts and concerns.
Today at 4 p.m. we are hosting a forum for an open dialogue about the incident and to address any questions and concerns that you may have. In attendance will be myself, HSU President Lisa Rossbacher; HSU Chief of Police Donn Peterson; Cheryl Johnson of the HSU Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion; and a representative from the City of Arcata. Other HSU staff will be available as well.
The forum will be held in the University’s Goodwin Forum in Nelson Hall East at 4 p.m. today. There will be pizza and light refreshments.
For assistance any time, students can contact Counseling & Psychological Services at 707.326.3236 or the Dean of Students Office at 707.826.3504. Staff or faculty seeking additional support may utilize the Employee Assistance Program at 707.443.7358.
We appreciate your participation.
Interim Vice President of Student Affairs
