SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Syracuse University Chancellor Kent Syverud said the interim suspension for a group of #NotAgainSU protesters has been lifted.
This decision comes after three days of student protests.
The students said they are unhappy with the campus culture and the school’s handling of bias related incidents dating back to the fall.
In an address to the student senate, the chancellor said, “We are on the edge now, and our university needs to step back so we can continue the productive, ongoing work to address the issues of diversity, inclusion and safety.”
On Tuesday, at least 30 protesters were suspended for violating the code of conduct for gathering in a building after it was closed.
Crouse Hinds-Hall will return to normal business hours on Thursday at 7 a.m. and will have standard hours of operation. Students have been occupying the building in protest since Monday at noon.
“Individuals who wish to remain in the building outside of standard business hours are welcome to do so. However, if they leave the building, they will not be able to re-enter until the building reopens.”Statement from Syracuse University officials
Classes will be relocated to other academic buildings.
