"The thoughts and prayers of the NYU community are with the New Yorkers injured in the horrific shooting in the subway in the Sunset Park section of Brooklyn.

"The incident occurred a substantial distance from any NYU's Washington Square or Downtown Brooklyn academic facilities, and we are unaware of any NYU community members being among the injured. The University is carefully monitoring the situation and has been in touch with City authorities; we are aware of no threats directed against NYU facilities or personnel.  The University is carrying on with normal operations; members of the NYU community should avoid the 36th Street Station area in Brooklyn.  

"Today's incident is an extraordinary and unnerving act of violence.  We remind members of the University community of the availability of support and assistance for students through the Wellness Exchange and for employees through NYU's Employee Assistance Program. Students experiencing difficulties due to transportation disruptions should be in touch with their faculty or with other kinds of needs or concerns. Staff experiencing transportation disruptions or other challenges should speak with their supervisors."
