Emory University is investigating reports of two new incidents in which adjunct law professors reportedly used a racial slur in class, a spokeswoman for the university said Friday.

“During one of the instances, after a student raised concern about the necessity of using the word, the professor apologized, and the class continued,”’ Laura Diamond, assistant vice president of communications and public affairs, said Friday. “The university is looking into both incidents. Emory remains committed to upholding the principles of equity, inclusion, and respect that all members of community embrace and value.”
