Eastern Michigan University

Some members of the Eastern Michigan University faculty and staff are being harassed after participating in a rally last week to protest racist graffiti found on campus.

Vice President for Communications at EMU Walter Kraft confirmed that various university offices filed complaints of harassment after some of their employees took part in the rally.  

The Department of Public Safety is conducting an investigation to identify the individual or individuals responsible for harassing the employees.  

The university was going to host a forum to address the graffiti last week, but that was put on hold.  They decided it would be more productive to continue working with Black student leaders on campus to see what can be done to address the issue.
