The historically black school's commencement is being held Tuesday at the neighboring university's College Park campus, where Richard Collins III was fatally stabbed early Saturday.

A moment of silence in Collins' honor was held during the ceremony. President Mickey Burnim asked graduates to contemplate "what each of us might do to promote greater peace, harmony and love that seems to be so lacking in our country and our world today."

University of Maryland physics professor Charles Clark dressed in his academic regalia and carried a sign honoring Collins as he greeted Bowie State graduates and faculty. He says he wanted to greet people on his own behalf and "give them a good impression" of the university.

People walking into the graduation ceremony thanked Clark, including Bowie State science professor Uvetta Dozier, who called Collins' death heartbreaking. Dozier says Collins' "life could have been a lamp unto those who are lost."

Notre Dame Students Plan to Protest Mike Pence's Commencement Speech

  Notre Dame Students Plan to Protest Mike Pence's Commencement Speech Some University of Notre Dame students plan to walk out of Vice President Mike Pence‘s commencement speech at the university on Sunday. Notre Dame’s student activist coalition, We StaND For, planned the walkout to stand in solidarity with those affected by Pence’s policies, the group said in a statement. "During his time as governor of the state of Indiana and now as Vice-President, Pence has targeted the civil rights protections of members of LGBT_ community, rejected the Syrian refugee resettlement program, supported an unconstitutional ban of religious minorities, and fought against sanctuary cities," the coalition said. "All of these policies have marginalized our vulnerable sisters and brothers for their religion, skin color, or sexual orientation." We StaND For said inviting Pence to speak contradicts Notre Dame’s Catholic values. The university’s decision to have Pence speak has caused controversy elsewhere - more than 1,700 Notre Dame alumni signed a letter expressing disappointment that Pence was appointed as commencement speaker. Several other groups will protest the speech off-campus, including Planned Parenthood of Indiana & Kentucky, the Nu Black Power Movement and Alliance for Democracy, the Washington Post reports.

The University of Maryland's Black Student Union says the slaying of a visiting black student isn't the first incident to expose "escalating racial tensions" at the school.

In a statement, the student group said Monday that the slaying of Richard Collins III, a Bowie State University student set to graduate Tuesday, was clearly racially motivated. The group says the administration enabled the suspect, Sean Urbanski, with its "consistent dismissal of blatant hate speech and race-biased crimes" that threaten marginalized students.

The group says the university must do more than have a dialogue. It says it's "imperative to condemn the thoughts and behaviors associated with hate speech because of its undoubted ability to manifest as racist violence."
