Yesterday evening Public Safety staff were made aware of stickers placed at various locations across campus promoting a white supremacist group. This particular group is known to place propaganda on college and university campuses, but is typically non-violent.

The stickers were placed in the various locations between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. by two individuals. One suspect was a white male, approximately 6’0”, clean shaven, thin, wearing a tan baseball hat, dark jacket and blue jeans. The other suspect was a white male, approximately 5’8”, stocky, wearing a tan hat, grey hoodie under a flannel shirt, and blue jeans.

Public Safety staff, along with the Facilities staff worked quickly to remove all known stickers from campus property. Furthermore, leaders from Public Safety, Equity and Inclusion Initiatives, and Student Affairs will continue to monitor the situation and take immediate action on any reports of continued activity from this, or other racist organizations, on campus.
