Investigations have been opened at the University of Connecticut after three students were filmed using racial slurs Friday morning. The video shows three white students saying the n-word and laughing outside the open windows of black students’ apartments in the Charter Oak Apartment complex. UConn Police are investigating the incident and an administrative investigation is also underway, university spokesperson Stephanie Reitz said.
The Fire Safety and Security Report (FSSR), which details on-campus Clery crimes, violence against women and drug and liquor law violations, and the Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) report, which details sexual assaults, stalkings and intimate partner violence cases, were released to the UConn community earlier this week.
“The test involves multiple messaging platforms,” the email said. “A notice will be posted on the UConn Alert website; an email will be sent to all students, faculty and staff; and posts will appear on the University’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.”
The Academy, which takes place on Tuesday nights for 11 weeks from September to November, provides UCPD with an opportunity to connect with members of the community they serve .
