NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Yale University officials have responded to complaints regarding a perceived antagonistic atmosphere toward minority students at the prestigious Ivy League institution.

The New Haven Register reports (https://bit.ly/1lckCnB ) President Peter Salovey and Yale College Dean Jonathan Holloway sent university-wide emails Friday addressing students’ concerns about a pattern of discrimination on campus.

University officials spent four hours with students who voiced their grievances Thursday at a forum in Woodbridge Hall.

Following the meeting, Salovey said in his email that he was “deeply troubled” by the conversation and that the entire school community must join together to create greater “inclusion, healing, mutual respect and understanding” at Yale.

The Washington Post reports Salovey told students “we failed you” at the forum.

Students demanded a response from the university at a previous forum held Wednesday.
