Glassman releases off-campus crime statement

Staff Report

President David Glassman released an email statement in response to the crimes happening off-campus Friday.

Glassman said the University Police are taking care to provide a safe campus and will continue to do so with increased foot and bike patrols.

He said the safety of Eastern’s students, faculty and staff is highly important.

“Families send their children to us expecting a quality learning environment within a safe community—we will not let them down,” Glassman said.

Glassman said students are expected to carry themselves in a certain manner in order to attend the university, which can be found in the Student Conduct Code.

“We expect our students to adhere to our Student Conduct Code and those who do not may be dismissed,” Glassman said. “Eastern Illinois University has a proud history of producing alumni who contribute much to Charleston, their home communities, their state and their nation — we expect nothing less of our current students.”
