News and Perspectives
In a string of anti-Semitic incidents on the University’s campus that swelled in November and slowed in mid-February, drawings of swastikas were found in bathrooms and treaded in the snow on a football field. One student found a drawing of a concentration camp in his Pioneer Hall dorm room, and near McNamara Alumni Center, white-supremacist posters with swastikas were hung from telephone poles.
Now, through panel discussions and workshops the University is working to address increased reports of bias-related incidents.
