Hate incidents plague URI

February 24, 2011

A series of hate-related incidents at the University of Rhode Island are raising concerns. University President David Dooley has sent a memo to every member of the campus community, urging them to speak out if they see anything inappropriate.

Dooley says there have been several incidents over the past few weeks that include homophobic taunting and vandalism that appears to have ethnic, racial and religious implications. URI officials are urging students to report anything they see to the school’s bias response team.
