N.C. State Students Protest After Alleged Proud Boy Kept on University Payroll

A small group of N.C. State University students showed up at Stafford Commons Tuesday afternoon to "freeze out" an alleged Proud Boy who works for the university's Office of Information Technology and who reportedly harassed an undergraduate student. The event, organized by the N.C. State Student Government, was held in response to the university's decision not to fire Seagraves.

On January 11, N.C. State administrators announced there would be no action taken against Chadwick Seagraves, the State employee who was named in an Oregon lawsuit for allegedly publicizing the names and personal information of activists in Asheville and Portland, Oregon. Metadata for more than 1,400 of the personal files reportedly traced back to Seagraves. Seagraves has also been photographed at far-right extremist events in North Carolina.

"N.C. State confirmed the employee did not have access to the protected personal information of any N.C. State student or any staff members other than those supervised by the employee," the university said in a statement after investigators looked through Seagraves's on-the-job data. "As part of its review, N.C. State also worked with external investigators to ascertain the validity of the allegations."

Students have demanded the university take action against Seagraves—aside from Tuesday's student government protest, a petition to fire the technical support services employee has almost 2,800 signatures. The Technician, N.C. State's largest student newspaper, penned an editorial in support of Tuesday's movement.
