Dear UCI Community,

I write to provide an update on the campus safety action message shared on April 19. We understand that there are concerns regarding the arrest and incarceration of a former UCI student who has made threats to the UCI community.

The former student is currently incarcerated on a $1 million dollar bond and remains in county jail with a trial scheduled to begin on July 20, 2022. We expect that this individual will remain in custody until at least the conclusion of the trial. We have been working closely with the Orange County District Attorney’s office throughout the investigation, apprehension, and now prosecution of the former student. UCI Police and campus leaders have been vigilant and proactive about protecting our community throughout this process.

Although we have no information about any threats to UCI, we have safety measures in place while the campus community enjoys the end of the academic year and the upcoming commencement festivities.

As a friendly reminder, please be vigilant and report any suspicious behavior, persons, or items to UCI Police Department at 949-824-5223.

We are fortunate to have a range of resources of support for our community. Students who would like mental health and/or well-being support may contact the UCI Counseling Center at or 949-824-6457. Faculty and staff may contact the Employee Assistance Program for support resources.

Stay safe,

Liz Griffin
