Syracuse, N.Y. - Syracuse University is preparing a better way to handle communication regarding racist incidents on campus.
After SU faced more than a dozen racist and bigoted incidents within a two week span, officials have changed how they will alert the campus. The university has created a webpage where Department of Public Safety officials say they will post information about “bias-related incidents” within 48 hours or sooner.
This comes after Chancellor Kent Syvrud and the Public Safety Chief Bobby Maldonado were critized by students for their handling of the racists incidents, as well as an issue with the spreading of rumors.
Students at one time were demanding that both resign over the issue. SU's DPS says this webpage will be the communities trusted source for accurate and reliable information moving forward.
