OU Architecture dean apologizes for offense caused by attire
The dean of OU's College of Architecture issued an apology Monday for wearing clothing associated with Islam at a back-to-school meeting.
A photo on the College of Architecture's Facebook page that has since been deleted showed Dean Charles Graham wearing a white thawb and a red keffiyeh on his head at the meeting on Aug. 20.
In his apology, he said he purchased the garments when he went to Dubai. According to the apology, he asked "a number of [his] Muslim friends around campus and in Norman to see if [his] wearing the attire would be offensive in any religious way," to which the answers were "all resoundingly 'no.'"
