Ohio Dominican University will require all students to take a multiculturalism class starting this fall and will take other steps to deal with the aftermath of an outbreak of bigoted vandalism on the campus last summer, according to an article in today�s Columbus Dispatch that describes the recommendations of a report by the university�s Presidential Task Force on Multiculturalism. The vandalism, which included racist graffiti, remains unsolved. The Roman Catholic university also is creating a multicultural-affairs office, and will increase programming and support for minority students.And use resources that previously went to other academic endeavors. Of course, it's not like anyone ever fakes those things. A reward for $1000 is offered for information on the crimes; if one wanted to get to the bottom of this, I'd think you would juice that bounty.
