Syracuse University chancellor outlines anti-racism plans

Syracuse University

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - The chancellor of Syracuse University says the school has allocated $5.6 million toward addressing issues of diversity and inclusion.

In his annual winter address on Monday, Chancellor Kent Syverud addressed racist incidents that caused campus turmoil in the fall.

He says his administration has made more than 50 promises to students to improve the climate on campus.

They include hiring diverse faculty members and establishing new space for student groups, especially those representing marginalized communities.

Racist incidents including hateful graffiti led to student protests last semester, but the Syracuse Post-Standard reports there were no demonstrations at Syverud's speech Monday.
