Austin Peay State University (APSU)’s Office of Equity, Access and Inclusion officials have announced they will fight hate speech on campus, even though one official said no known examples of hate speech have occurred there.
Additionally, APSU officials said they have no way to precisely define what is and isn’t hate speech.
Officials at the Clarksville-based Austin Peay State University announced they will move all of this year’s face-to-face summer classes online, or to other forms of non-face-to-face instruction.
“We appreciate everyone’s hard work and flexibility as we continue to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic,” APSU President Dr. Alisa White wrote in an email to students, faculty and staff.
“In order to continue to do what we can to mitigate the spread of the virus and ‘flatten the curve,’ we have decided to move all face-to-face Summer 2020 classes to non-face-to-face instruction.”
