In light of the recent racial incidents that have occurred on campus, the administration has addressed feedback and questions from the community regarding what actions will be taken to better manage any future instances of racism and discrimination.
Within the past month, one student on campus was called various racial slurs from the third floor of Wolfe Hall and a building services employee encountered a racial slur while cleaning the Interactive Multimedia Building.
As a response to the recent incidents of racism at the College, Student Affairs, Academic Affairs and Student Government hosted a panel titled, ‘I Am TCNJ’ at noon on Nov. 28 in Kendall Hall to address concerns about inclusivity on campus.
The Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion hosted “Campus Dialogue Day” on Nov. 14 in the Brower Student Center. The discussion touched on topics such as universal inclusion and implicit bias in the campus community.
The College is currently in the final stage of recruitment for its next chief of police. The search committee held three forums in the Library Auditorium, one for each of the final three candidates — the College’s Interim Chief of Police Timothy Grant, Lt. Christopher Cherbini of Marlboro Police Department and Administrative Sergeant Brian Melnick at Princeton University Department of Public Safety.
Hoping to hear a larger variety of voices, Student Government, the Office of Student Involvement and the Inter Greek Council hosted an open forum on Tuesday, Sept. 19, in Brower Student Center room 101 to discuss potential changes to the annual Homecoming Spirit Week competition.
