As stated via social media yesterday, the University prizes and promotes free and open expression. Any violent incident that attempts to impede free expression, however isolated, is unacceptable.
During a student-organized rally held on campus on Wednesday, there was a physical interaction between CSUF students and a lecturer.
Law enforcement is conducting an investigation, and the district attorney will assess the relevant facts. The University is also conducting an internal investigation.
The University cannot disclose information about any action that might be taken while the investigation is underway. As part of the investigation, all parties involved will have a full opportunity to explain what occurred from their perspective.
