Ohio University police investigate four possibly racially motivated incidents

President Dr. Hugh Sherman says, 'Our community will not tolerate a culture that threatens, physically or emotionally, any group or individual on our campus.'

Ohio University continues to investigate four potentially racially motivated incidents in student residence halls over the past week.

The university is “deeply concerned” about the “detrimental impact” that the four incidents, three of which occurred last weekend and the fourth on Wednesday, may have on communities of color, according to a news release Thursday from the Ohio University Police Department.

The events also prompted the Minority Association of Pre-Health Students at Ohio University to hold a protest Thursday afternoon, where demonstrators marched from Peden Stadium to Cutler Hall, according to a social media post from the student organization.
