Multiculturalism Class to Be Required After Racial Incidents at Ohio Dominican U.

April 05, 2007

Ohio Dominican University will require all students to take a multiculturalism class starting this fall and will take other steps to deal with the aftermath of an outbreak of bigoted vandalism on the campus last summer, according to an article in today’s Columbus Dispatch that describes the recommendations of a report by the university’s Presidential Task Force on Multiculturalism. The vandalism, which included racist graffiti, remains unsolved. The Roman Catholic university also is creating a multicultural-affairs office, and will increase programming and support for minority students. —Andrew Mytelka
