Dear Members of the UCSF Community,

We are saddened by the stabbing incident that occurred on the UC Merced campus yesterday morning. Our thoughts go out to the victims and their families, as well as the entire UC Merced community. Fortunately, all four victims are expected to recover.

These tragic events serve to remind us about the important role we all have in protecting the safety and security of our community.

We can fulfill this role in two ways:

  • First, be vigilant and report any suspicious activities to the UCSF Police Department.
  • Second, register your contact information with WarnMe, UCSF’s mass notification system. You can sign up using your MyAccess ID and password at http://warnme.ucsf.edu/

Registering with the WarnMe notification system is one way to ensure that in the event of an emergency situation that affects UCSF, you will receive timely and accurate information via email, text, and voice messaging. In addition, breaking news about emergencies and disasters will be posted on UCSF.edu and through UCSF’s official social media accounts.

Sincerely,

Sam Hawgood, MBBS
Chancellor
Arthur and Toni Rembe Rock Distinguished Professor
