White House spokesperson Jen Psaki described reports that seven historically Black colleges and universities received bomb threats Monday morning as being "disturbing."

Albany State University in Georgia, Delaware State University in Delaware, Southern University and A&M College in Louisiana, Howard University in Washington, D.C., Bowie State University in Maryland and Bethune-Cookman University in Florida were among the schools that received threats.

"These are certainly disturbing, and the White House is in touch with the interagency partners, including federal law enforcement leadership on this," Psaki said during Monday's White House press briefing.

"We're relieved to hear that Howard and Bethune-Cookman have been given the all clear, and we'll continue to monitor these reports."

Psaki added that President Joe Biden had been made aware of the bomb threats.

It was the second time this month that Black colleges and universities faced bomb threats. On Jan. 5, eight historically Black colleges and universities received such threats, but no suspicious packages or explosives were found.
