Wednesday, Sept. 2

This message was sent to Loyola University Maryland students and employees the morning of Sept. 2.

Dear Members of the Loyola Community,

Today, the first court proceedings will begin in the trial of six Baltimore City police officers charged in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray. These motions hearings involve legal challenges to the charges; a second motion hearing will be held Sept. 10 and the trial is scheduled to begin Oct. 13. Any high-profile decisions in this case have the potential to be followed by additional demonstrations and protests, some of which are already planned for areas of downtown Baltimore this morning and this evening (details below). At this time city officials are not anticipating activity or unrest on the scale we witnessed in the spring.

I want to reemphasize that Loyola’s campus remains safe, and the health and safety of our community continues to be our top priority. Previous unrest did not occur in close proximity to Loyola’s campus, and there is no indication that future unrest, should it occur, will happen nearby.

At least two demonstrations are planned for today at 8 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. in front of the circuit court buildings located in the 100 block of North Calvert Street in Baltimore City (*Update: an additional demonstration is planned for the same area at 4:30 p.m.). Please keep the following in mind to further ensure your safety:

  • Be aware of protest location(s) and any related disruptions to traffic and public transportation. Traffic advisories are available on the Baltimore City Department of Transportation’s website.
  • If you find yourself in a situation off campus and are not sure what to do, contact public safety at 410-617-5010 for advice and support.
  • Check email regularly. Loyola will monitor the situation and make every effort to keep you updated with safety and traffic details if and when that information becomes available.
  • Support services are available through the Counseling Center, Campus Ministry, and the office of student life.

I encourage you to be mindful that we live, learn, and work in a major metropolitan area that faces many of the same issues that occur in other U.S. cities. Peaceful demonstrations are a response to these issues; unfortunately, so is unrest. As a community we continue to pray for peace and for the strength to come together as we did only a few months ago to address Baltimore’s challenges and to celebrate its incredible resilience, prosperity, and hope for the future.

Sincerely,

Sheilah Shaw Horton, Ph.D.
Vice President for Student Development and Dean of Students
