On April 13, an individual was removed from campus and banned after refusing to leave an office in African American Studies in Walker Hall where he espoused a racist ideology. Since an incident earlier this year when the department’s sign was pushed over, the University of Florida Police Department has increased patrols and will continue to work with faculty and staff to help ensure a safe work environment. If anyone in the campus community feels afraid or threatened, call the UF Police Department immediately.
