Information on Incident Involving UH Theatre Students
Saturday, February 4, 2023
I’m reaching out today to provide you with information concerning the media reports regarding an incident last year involving two students from our School of Theatre and Dance and the University of Houston Police Department. You may have only begun to hear about it this past week. Below are two documents that outline what happened and is happening along with a number of frequently asked questions (FAQ):
- A full accounting of events, including timelines, subsequent actions, and what is being done now. View document here.
- FAQ addressing the questions about the incident. View document here.
I ask you to read the documents for yourself to understand the facts and hopefully answer questions that you may have on what you've heard.
