Race Relations on Campus Database

Periodically, JBHE Weekly Bulletin will publish a selection of racial incidents that have occurred on the campuses of colleges and universities. Here are the latest incidents:

• Two bulletin boards in a classroom building at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven were defaced with racial graffiti. A swastika and a racial slur were written on the bulletin boards. (Hartford Courant, 8-19-10)

• Racial slurs were found written on the walls of a bathroom in a residence hall at Northern Kentucky University in Highland Heights. There were two separate incidents over a one-week period. The slurs were directed against African Americans. (Cincinnati Enquirer, 9-11-10)

• A black professor at Fresno State University is suing the university claiming that he was unfairly suspended after joking about shooting his students. When he returned from the one-semester suspension, the professor claims he was treated unfairly and given more work assignments than nonblack faculty members with less seniority. (Fresno Bee, 9-10-10)
