MIT Statement Regarding Stabbing Incident — Oct. 25, 2007

We are deeply troubled by this violent act upon one of our students. We are supporting him, his family and friends, and others in our community. We are heartened by the progress he has shown in his recovery.

The safety and security of our community is of the utmost importance. MIT has longstanding policies and procedures in place for the safety and security of our residence halls. We have been meeting today with residence hall staff to review safety and security precautions.

We are cooperating fully with the Cambridge Police Department and the Middlesex District Attorney’s office on their investigation. It would be inappropriate to comment on any details related to this ongoing investigation.
