It remains unclear if the threats are "credible" but Hochul confirmed New York State Police is "engaged."
"I spoke to leaders representing SUNY, CUNY and private colleges and universities across New York State. I told them New York State Police and the whole of state government will continue to support their efforts to keep their students and campus communities safe," Hochul added.
Campus officials are looking for the person who spray painted anti-Israeli graffiti at several spots at Cornell University in Upstate New York.

Some messages include "Zionism equals Racism" and "Israel is Fascist."
"I reiterated our strong belief in free speech and the right to peaceful assembly, but made clear that we will have zero tolerance for acts of violence or those who intimidate and harass others through words or actions," Hochul told school officials.
An investigation is also underway at Cornell University in Ithaca after threats were made towards Jewish students.
Threats were posted on a website that is not associated with the college, officials say.
