IU Receives Reports Of Intimidation, Harassment After Election

Students and Bloomington residents have gathered on IU's campus for rallies since last week's election.

Indiana University President Michael McRobbie said in a campus-wide e-mail Monday that the university’s received reports of intimidation and harassment since last week’s election.

“This kind of behavior is completely inconsistent with the spirit of tolerance and respect that we must foster, and it is totally unacceptable, as is any form of vandalism to property,” McRobbie wrote.

The e-mail said all are welcome at IU and the university will continue to ensure the safety of its community.

Students and Bloomington residents have gathered for several rallies on IU’s campus since Donald Trump was elected president. More than 200 people rallied in front of the Sample Gates Sunday night.

At the same time, Bloomington police are investigating vandalism along the B-Line trail, where someone discovered swastikas and “KKK” spray painted in several locations last week.
