[Ed. – That seems to track with what most new media reporting would come up with. An amazing number of these “incidents” go beyond not meeting the criteria for violating university policies. They turn out to be hoaxes, often perpetrated by the person reporting the incident.]
Over the past five years, nearly 1,200 Michigan State University students and staff members reported racial discrimination incidents. Only eight instances, however, truly violated the school’s bias and discrimination policies.
According to data provided to the Lansing State Journal by Michigan State’s Office of Institutional Equity, affiliates reported 1,187 instances of race-based bias and discrimination between 2015 and September 2020. Of those instances, 76 revealed issues with conduct, and of those 76 issues, eight instances — less than 1 percent of all reported — constituted violations of the school’s policies.
Campus Reform independently confirmed this data with Michigan State University Office of Institutional Equity spokesperson Christian Chapman.
