The Ateneo de Davao University is deeply disturbed by the incident of violence between two of its SHS learners outside its campus last 18 September 2019. 

The University does not condone any violence or bullying among members of its community whether on or off campus. It stresses its commitment to educating and caring for its learners, from grade school to college, so that they may grow into future leaders of Mindanao who are themselves dedicated to peace and service. 

The Ateneo de Davao University Senior High School has begun its formal investigation of the learners involved while keeping foremost in mind the welfare and needs of the victim. 

As the investigation proceeds, the University assures the community that the Director of the Senior High School and its Prefect of Discipline accord this case top priority. Moreover, the University will take appropriate measures to resolve it in a manner that is fair to all involved.
