The University of Nebraska-Lincoln intends to begin a campaign against racial insensitivity following Chancellor Harvey Perlman's campus-wide email deploring the use of racial slurs at a recent student government meeting.
Perlman said in Thursday's email that "the use of the N-word and insensitive racial impersonations are the recent incidents that demand our immediate attention."
A student senator used the N-word during a debate two weeks ago while objecting to a resolution pledging student senators' support for stopping the use of derogatory language in their everyday speech. He criticized the resolution as an attack on free speech.
