Tufts University responds to ‘incidents of hate’ on campus

By: | May 4, 2021

Tufts University is investigating reported anti-Asian and anti-Semitic incidents that occurred on its campus last week.

According to the university, passengers in a vehicle allegedly yelled anti-Asian slurs while driving by several students who were walking on campus.

One of the students who says he was threatened and verbally insulted while walking down the street last week says he no longer feels safe on campus.

The senior, who did not want to provide his name, says a black pick up truck with at least two men in it slowed down as it passed his group on Professor’s Row on the Tufts campus. The four students, who were walking home after taking graduation pictures, say the men yelled racial slurs, threatened to hurt them and made other hateful comments related to the coronavirus.
