posted on Sept. 11: McMaster University remains open


[img_inline align=”right” src=””]In light of today's terrorism attacks in the U.S., the University wishes to advise that McMaster will remain open and classes will continue as usual.

The University's crisis management team is monitoring developments.

“The tragic events in New York and Washington occurred far away from campus but we have a significant number of people at the University who have connections with the U.S. and other countries. You can tell that many people on campus are upset and concerned,” said Karen Belaire, vice-president administration and chair of the crisis management team.

Security on campus will be increased. “It's important that people feel safe so some extra patrols will be put in place,” said Belaire.

Associate vice-president student affairs Mary Keyes is meeting with student groups this afternoon.

A further update will be issued after 4 p.m. this afternoon.
