Just got this from U spokesman Dan Wolter:
The U of M is evacuating our Science Teaching and Student Services building because of a threat that was made against the facility. More specifically, a bomb threat. Law enforcement will conduct a precautionary search of the facility and it will be re-opened as soon as possible.
