New Task Force to Battle Hate Crimes at the University of North Dakota

The University of North Dakota in Grand Forks is forming a new task force to review campus policies on hate crimes. The new 17-member committee is charged with developing guidelines for a “rapid response” team that can aid and protect victims of hate crimes. The committee will also look into ways to prevent hate crimes and increase racial tolerance on campus.

Blacks make up one percent of the 10,000-member student body at the University of North Dakota.
