UNH President Condemns Rise in On-Campus Hate Incidents

University of New Hampshire

University of New Hampshire President Mark Huddleston sent a campus-wide email Tuesday condemning what he says has been a recent increase in hate incidents on campus.

In the letter addressed to the ‘UNH Campus Community’, President Huddleston said several students, faculty, and staff at UNH have recently been the victims of acts of hate including racial slurs, spitting, and bullying. He says the incidents have occurred in person, on social media, and in voicemails.

Huddleston condemned the acts and reiterated what he called UNH’s commitment to a diverse, inclusive, and safe environment.

The letter also included information on how victims could report such incidents to university administration.

This letter was emailed campus-wide on Tuesday.
