ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Colorado State University says policies are being developed to make the school more welcoming to Native American students after campus police pulled two Mohawk brothers, from northern New Mexico, from an admissions tour last spring.

University spokesman Mike Hooker's statement Thursday came in response to an American Civil Liberties Union letter demanding the school increase police training and review policies that dictate how officers respond to "bias based" reports on campus.

The legal group represents Thomas Kanewakeron Gray and Lloyd Skanahwati Gray, whose campus tour was interrupted by police after a parent in the group reported they appeared evasive.

The school says campus police already are required to complete anti-bias training, and follow policies aimed at preventing bias-based policing.

The ACLU says the training and policies failed to prevent a humiliating situation for the Grays.
