SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Syracuse University has made biased vandalism grounds for immediate suspension and removal from campus following a rash of racist and anti-Semitic graffiti.
A university official says any student who commits, assists or coordinates an act of biased vandalism or graffiti will be removed from campus.
Rob Hradsky, vice president for the student experience, made the announcement posted on the university website Thursday. He said it's clear a few individuals are intent on dividing the community and spreading fear through bigoted graffiti.
A series of racist incidents set off protests at the end of last semester and students have demanded administrators take action.
