There were several incidents of bias including use of racial slurs that took place within a short period of time on campus. The incidents became public and the university was criticized for mishandling the response. Morale seemed to be low among students, staff, and faculty as a result of the varied accounts of the incidents as well as a lack of information about the Bias Incident Committee processes.
There were three specific actions taken by President Machtley to address the incidents and subsequent issues with morale.
