DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — The University of New Hampshire’s president is condemning “hate incidents” on campus such as people making racial slurs and leaving “vulgar and vitriolic” emails and voicemails for others.

President Mark Huddleston emailed campus members Tuesday. He urges people not to respond to “emails, Internet trolls or voicemails,” instead saying all incidents should be reported to the university or the campus police.

Huddleston says UNH is committed to a diverse and inclusive campus environment. He writes, “the attitudes and acts of a few cannot overtake our community if we stand together.”

Huddleston does not reference any specific issues or say how many incidents have been reported recently.
