Message from Dean Murphy and Dyane Watson

Dear Falk College Community,

As you were recently made aware in an email from the Syracuse University Department of Public Safety (DPS), a community service officer discovered what appeared to be a stray bullet lodged in a wall on the third floor of Peck Hall. Please refer to the Public Safety Informational Notice for information.

This was a disturbing incident and we share your deep concern. Please know that your safety and health remain our first priority and we will communicate new information to you as soon as we receive it.

A meeting with Marriage and Family Therapy students, faculty and staff is being planned to provide an opportunity for discussion. In addition, counseling and support resources are available for all Syracuse students, faculty, and staff.

Please reach out to us at any time with your questions and concerns. This news is troubling, and it is important to us that all members of our Falk community receive support.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to cooperate with DPS and the Syracuse Police Department (SPD) as they investigate this matter.


Diane Lyden Murphy
Dean, Falk College

Chair, Department of Marriage and Family Therapy
