UWEC Addresses Racism on Campus

Administrators at UW-Eau Claire are promising to be extra vigilant about race and racism going forward.

Chancellor Jim Schmidt yesterday said they are looking for restorative justice after a panel of administrators, faculty members, and students cleared five football players accused of sharing a racist Snapchat post last year. The panel found the players didn’t violate university rules. All five had been suspended, all five have now been reinstated.

Schmidt says their behavior was unacceptable, and he is pledging to do more about race on campus.
