Rutgers University—Camden, since it is a small campus, is able to respond immediately to any concern, whether it be public safety or the welfare of one student.


A Rutgers University—Camden law school student has been banned from the South Jersey campus after making some “disturbing” posts on Facebook this past Thursday, according to an article on the Courier-Post. 

The student "wrote a number of posts that have been characterized as disturbing and placed them on a closed Facebook page for Rutgers Law students," the University stated, according to the article. 

The posts appeared on a Facebook page that were created and moderated by Rutgers Law students, according to the article. The decision to ban the student from campus was also backed by the Rutgers University Police Department (RUPD), which began an investigation into their previous interactions with other people at Rutgers.

"What emerged from the investigation is that no one felt a credible, immediate threat to the safety of the campus. We were taking steps out of concern for the student," said Mike Sepanic, a Rutgers University—Camden spokesperson, according to the article. 

The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office is assisting in the investigation. No arrests or charges have been made at the time of the announcement, according to the article. 

"Because it is a small campus, we do respond immediately to any concern, whether it's possibly public safety impact or the welfare of a specific student. And in this case, we had both," Sepanic said, according to the article.
