  • The "Wall of Hate" is part of NSU's Unity Week, which began on Wednesday
  • Administrator says Unity Week "promotes the NSU Core Values of Diversity and Community."
  • A school administrator from Nova Southeastern University (NSU) said the school’s ‘Hate Wall’ is funded by student fees and could include words such as “N*gger,” “f*ggot,” and other epithets.

    Vera Mandilovitch, Associate Director, Office of Public Affairs told Campus Reform via email on Wednesday that “Words that are associated with hate will be written on the 'Wall of Hate' by students who chose to participate in the event.”

     “The language we may see but are not limited to are words such as, Ni**er, F*got, Spick, Monkey, etc…,” she added.

    “[W]hile hate does exist in the world, we will not accept it here at NSU. In tearing down the Wall we are tearing down the hate on our campus. It is done during Unity Week because we are taking a stand together as One NSU.

    “The language we may see but are not limited to are words such as, Ni**er, F*got, Spick, Monkey, etc…”   

    Mandilovitch says that the wall is not an attempt to change the world, "but if we can ensure our students that NSU campus is a safe place for them to be who they are, then that's a start."

    She also said the event is funded by student fees which are provided to the Office of Student Activities specifically for events which focus on multicultural and diversity. 

    As previously reported by Campus Reform, the “Hate Wall” is just one event which is part of the school’s Unity Week events, which started this Wednesday and will run through next Thursday.

    Shannon Booker, Assistant Director of Student Activities at Nova Southeastern University, told Campus Reform in the email that Unity Week is an important event because it highlights NSU’s commitment to diversity.

    “Unity Week is of great importance to NSU because it highlights President Hanbury’s vision of 'One NSU' and promotes the NSU Core Values of Diversity and Community. When my students approached me last semester about wanting to bring back Unity Week I was very excited and I empowered them to plan a week that involved social, cultural, and educational programs that will engage their peers and the NSU community,” said Booker.

    “I also told them that it was important that each program is informative and a positive experience. The students have also partnered with Radio X and the Residence Life Department and I am looking forward to a great Unity Week.”
