Auburn University officials have refused to share any substantial updates on an investigation they launched four months ago after some black students posted anti-white racial slurs in a group chat allegedly associated with the school’s Black Student Union.
When asked for an update, the university refused to provide even general information without any identifiers about the suspects.
The College Fix asked Auburn University if it could provide a general update on any punishments given out even if the school could not share individual names of those under investigation.
“Auburn University does not comment on individual student conduct cases,” Auburn’s Director of Communications Preston Sparks told The Fix via email on May 8. “Beyond the statement we sent out in February, [this] is the only other statement we will be issuing on the matter.”
