It’s not the first time Scotsdales religious science has been at the center of controversy.
Earlier this month, a Scottsdales professor was arrested for allegedly threatening to burn down a mosque he was teaching.
A week later, a woman who works for Scotsdale’s city government was arrested on a hate crime charge for allegedly burning down a church she attended.
Last week, an elderly man in a wheelchair was found shot to death inside a Scotsdalys home.
But this time, the university said the threats were not motivated by religious faith but were merely “unrelated to religion.”
“The university takes these incidents very seriously and takes action as necessary to prevent the recurrence of these types of incidents,” Scotsdenia University said in a statement.
“This incident is being investigated as a hate-motivated incident.
The university takes any threat to our campus seriously and has begun a formal investigation into the matter.”
