Statement regarding March 8 Incident

The safety and security of our students are our top priorities. With that in mind, we are writing to inform you of an aggravated robbery that took place on campus.

On March 8, 2017, at about 6:30 a.m. two students were robbed in the student parking lot. The students were not physically harmed. Following the incident, the students immediately notified school officials and the crime was reported to the New Orleans Police Department.

The administrative team takes this situation very seriously and additional precautions, such as added security officers, are in place to ensure the continued safety of our students and staff. We will also continue to work with the police department as their investigation continues. Further, we have noticed that the New Orleans Police Department increased patrols in our area. 

We are constantly evaluating our security procedures and physical protection systems, which include lighting, cameras, locks, and campus access. School staff routinely informs and reinforces security measures of the facilities for the safety of all students, staff, and visitors.
