Statement from President Miguel Martinez-Saenz on Tragic Subway Incident

By President Miguel Martinez-Saenz

Dear SFC Community,

We are shocked and saddened by the tragic shooting that took place earlier today at the 36th Street subway station in Brooklyn. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families. Since the incident occurred this morning, we have been monitoring the situation closely and are in contact with the 84th Precinct.

The St. Francis College community hails from all reaches of New York City, including the area of today’s shooting. At unsettling moments such as this one, it may be comforting to meet with another to share feelings. Anyone desiring to speak with someone can contact Brother Gregory Cellini of the Office of Mission, Ministry and Interfaith Dialogue at [email protected] or Natasha Edwards, LMHC, NCC, CASAC-T, Associate Dean, Health Promotions & Wellness, at [email protected].

We are grateful that the College community remains safe. Out of an abundance of caution, all classes and administrative offices will operate remotely tomorrow, Wednesday, April 13.

Students: Check Canvas for specific information from your instructor/professor. The campus building will be open for members of the SFC community who wish to visit; however, everyone should remain vigilant. Should plans or operations change, we will inform you via a separate communication. Let’s continue to watch out for and take good care of one another.

In peace and friendship,

Miguel Martinez-Saenz
President, St. Francis College
