Towson University Refutes Allegations of an Unsafe Campus for White Students

Towson_University_sealA group calling itself the White Student Union has vowed to start unarmed patrols on the campus of Towson University in Maryland to combat “black on white” crime.

In a statement, Deb Moriarty, vice president for student affairs, and Bernie Gerst, associate vice president in the Office of Public Safety, said,  “There is no established or recognized ‘White Student Union’ (WSU) on Towson University’s campus. While a Towson University student attempted to form a recognized group in the fall, it failed to meet the university’s requirements for gaining recognition. It should also be mentioned that another individual, who was quoted in recent media reports as a member of the WSU, is not now nor has ever been enrolled as a student at Towson University.”

The university also stated that it had the lowest crime rate of any campus in the University System of Maryland.
