Measures are being taken to ensure the safety of all fraternity members on campus, he said. Beck said the IFC has never received threats of this severity before.
The University of Minnesota Police Department is investigating the incident, according to an email sent to chapter leaders on Wednesday by Vice Provost for Student Affairs and Dean of Students Danita Brown Young and UMPD Chief Matt Clark.
“We are aware of a recent, anonymous threat that was mailed to the Interfraternity Council targeting fraternities and their members,” they said in the email. “The safety and security of our students is our top priority, and we take this issue very seriously … and we are working in close coordination to address this situation.”

The email sent to fraternities campus-wide urged members to to lock doors and windows, walk with a friend, or use the school’s security escort service at night, the Gopher Chauffeur for rides.
The university also requested that students not were any identifying clothing, such as letters.
