Asbestos has been found at Fordham University, according to the university’s vice president of facilities.
The toxic material was found during a recent renovation project, but it was not completely unexpected because buildings built during the time period that these were, used asbestos frequently. The vice president exclaimed that they are using an “extensive containment system” and that the process will not pose a health risk to students.
Two buildings on campus had asbestos in them and it has been removed from both of them. The asbestos removal was done during the summer and while there were students on campus, officials have said that they have no risk of being exposed. The toxic material is the primary cause of the development of mesothelioma, a rare form of lung cancer.
