June 2020 Monthly Bias Incident Report

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:

I hope this email finds you and your families well and safe during this time. As I write to you today to provide our monthly update as it relates to bias incident investigations, I have to inform you of an incident that happened at noontime yesterday. A student reported the discovery of graffiti using language that is derogatory to Caucasians at the College Place bus stop. The Department of Public Safety (DPS) is currently working with the Syracuse Police Department and Onondaga County Crime Analysis Center to investigate this matter. At this time, there is no additional information.

Additionally, there are no new developments to report on previous reports; however, our investigations team continues to actively investigate the bias incidents that occurred on our campus. As we do have updates, we will be updating the table that we have created on the Department of Public Safety website.

It is never too late to come forward with information. A reward still remains available, thanks to the generosity of a concerned donor, for those who provide information that leads to the identification of responsible individuals. We can always be reached at 315.443.2224. If you would like to anonymously report NON-EMERGENCY information to DPS, you can use the Silent Witness tool or submit anonymous tips via the LiveSafe app.
