Students Cleared After Investigation

Students Cleared After Investigation

Five student-athletes are found not responsible for violating the Wisconsin Administrative Code after an investigation into racist social media posts.

The panel of faculty, staff and students were investigating the November 20-19 Snapchat posts by the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire football players that showed members of the KKK burning a cross. The photo included a message referring to the university Black Male Empowerment group. Chancellor Jim Schmidt said he accepts the ruling of the panel, but either way, the racist behavior is unacceptable on campus.
