In 2012, TCF bank informed at least twenty-two Iranian students at the University of Minnesota that their university-linked bank accounts would be closed. In that case no explanation was provided, but the students had one thing in common: they were all Iranian. NIAC worked closely with the students and attorney Samira Afzali to call on TCF to reverse its decision. A complaint was subsequently filed with the Minnesota Department of Human Rights by Afzali on behalf of several of the students. This past January, the department agreed to for potential discrimination.
