Syracuse University Places #NotAgainSU Activists On Interim Suspension

SYRACUSE, NY (WRVO) – Syracuse University has placed more than 30 #NotAgainSU organizers on interim suspension, after they refused to leave Crouse-Hinds Hall after the building closed Monday night. The students occupied the building Monday, renewing their protests over the university’s response to more than two dozen racist and anti-Semitic incidents on campus over the last several months. The group also renewed its calls for four top officials to resign.

Crouse-Hinds Hall is where the offices of Chancellor Kent Syverud and other administration officials are located. In a statement released earlier in the day, #NotAgainSU again called for the resignations of Syverud, Dolan Evanovich, senior vice president for enrollment and the student experience, Department of Public Safety Chief Bobby Maldonado, and Associate DPS Chief John Sardino.

“This building houses the enrollment, admissions, and administration offices, which are directly responsible for the systemic problems we gather here to protest,” the group said.

Monday night, SU officials handed out flyers to students telling them they faced interim suspension if they stayed in the building past 9 p.m., when the building closed, a violation of the school’s code of student conduct.

30+ protestors received letters of suspension after an email was sent out to the student body stating that “no students are being suspended for protesting.” These letters of suspensions were given to those who stayed in Crouse- Hinds Hall after 9PM. (1/3)
