Washington State University President Elson Floyd has added $10,000 of his own money to a reward for information leading to those who beat a WSU professor within an inch of his life.

41-year-old David Warner, a professor of ethnic studies, remains in critical condition following the March 30 beating in a parking lot of the Adams Mall in Pullman, Wash.

This morning's Lewiston Tribune reports that Floyd made the donation to a reward fund being administered by the department of WSU security in conjunction with Pullman Police.

Pullman police posted photos from surveillance cameras in hopes that witnesses to the incident might come forward and contact law enforcement at 509-334-0802.

"I strongly encourage anyone who knows anything about what happened that night or recognizes any of the individuals in the videos that have been publicly distributed to come forward," said Floyd.

Floyd also announced that he was creating something called a "Commission on Campus Climate" in the wake of the incident to "pull us together as a community to address a complex issue and explore possible long term solutions."
