On Monday morning, the UConn NAACP executive board called for the administration to take action after two racially-charged incidents.

Students voiced their frustrations to university officials in a meeting Sunday night and by Monday morning, The Daily Campus, UConn's student newspaper, published a letter from the NAACP UConn chapter's leaders that pressured the university to investigate and "apply the proper justice."

"As representatives for students of color on this campus, we are on high alert," the NAACP UConn executive board wrote in the letter. "If the university does not adequately address and handle these occurrences of racism appropriately, it will create a culture in which racism is tolerated and normalized."

Several organizations, including the Anti-Defamation League, have expressed concerns about the rise in hate crimes and white supremacists propaganda on college campuses over the past few years. The rise in incidents coupled with social media's ability to cast a national spotlight increases pressure on universities to take swift and corrective measures when a racially-charged incident occurs.

The NAACP chapter called for the university to work with the organization to create specific guidelines in the Student Code of Conduct and consequences for racist and hate speech incidents. These consequences would be conveyed to students during a required First-Year Experience course.

"The use of hate speech is unacceptable," the NAACP UConn chapter wrote. "The actions made by the three individuals [and] members of Delta Epsilon Psi are highlights of bigotry and the regurgitation of white supremacy."

Stephanie Reitz, UConn's spokesperson, told Newsweek the university was taking the matter "very seriously" and that the event involving students shouting the racial slur was being reviewed and handled under the university's Bias Incident Protocol. The procedures require the UConn Police Department, Dean of Students Office, Community Standards, Office of Institutional Equity, Office for Diversity and Inclusion, and Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs, to jointly address the situation. Administrative and campus police investigations were also underway.

Because the alleged incident involving fraternity members occurred off-campus, Reitz said the report is under the state police's jurisdiction. Although the investigation may be outside the university's jurisdiction, the NAACP UConn chapter said it still wants administrators to dole out punishments.

On the organization's list of demands was for Delta Epsilon Psi to issue a public apology and be disbanded for violating the university's discrimination policy and failing to uphold the Intercultural Greek Council standards.

Newsweek reached out to the Delta Epsilon Psi chapter at UConn but did not receive a response in time for publication.

The NAACP UConn executive board also requested a "large cluster hire" of black employees, including faculty, staff and police officers and for all of the demands to be fulfilled by spring 2020.
