Delaware State University (DSU)  was founded in 1891 and is one of the country’s first and most prominent historically black colleges (HBCUs).  Located in Dover, Delaware, the fully accredited university has additional satellite campuses located in the Delaware cities of Wilmington and Georgetown. Approximately 4,200 students are currently enrolled in the school. It is the second largest public university in the state of Delaware.

After the melee, Delaware State Attorney Beau Biden’s offices filed Class A misdemeanors against the former professor. read more…
