Message from HSU: Racist Social Media Posts

The Dean of Students office has been made aware of posts on social media showing HSU students making racist taunts and mocking the Black community. Basic decency and campus protocols demand a swift investigation, which is already underway.

As administration takes these behaviors seriously, an immediate and thorough student-conduct review will be conducted accordingly, while adhering to FERPA student-privacy laws.

The posts surface at a time of deep pain for the Black community. Such behavior, and the white supremacist culture that provides cover for it, does not reflect HSU values and we condemn it. We must all uphold and reinforce our values of social responsibility and respect by enforcing accountability efforts during times like these.
