KENT, OHIO - The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are investigating Julio Pino, a Kent State associate history professor, for his alleged involvement with the Islamic State, according to KentWired.

"Kent State is fully cooperating with the FBI," Kent State spokesman Eric Mansfield told WKYC Channel 3 News.

"As this is an ongoing investigation, we will have no further comment," said Mansfield. "The FBI has assured Kent State that there is no threat to campus.”

An FBI special agent told KentWired a joint terrorism task force has been investigating Pino for the last year and a half. 

Reached Wednesday, Jennifer Larson, head of the Kent State chapter of the American Association of University Professors, replied "AAUP-KSU has no comment on the matter at this time."
