Responding to bomb threat against Spelman College

Emory President Gregory L. Fenves issued the following statement Tuesday in response to a bomb threat against Spelman College. About two dozen historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) across the country have received bomb threats this year.

"I am saddened and disturbed that, for the third time this year, Spelman College received a bomb threat. The targeting of Spelman and other HBCUs in Georgia and across the nation is reprehensible. The Emory community stands with all Spelman students, faculty, and staff—our Atlanta neighbors, friends, and allies—during this difficult time.”
