“The fact that the Facebook post apparently was a fabrication does not change the necessity for continued vigilance in reassuring that we have a campus where everyone feels safe,” UW spokesman Chad Baldwin said in a statement. ”It’s important that this event does not undermine the progress that has been made in this area.”
