Filed in Campus Racial Incidents on December 4, 2015
A message containing a racial slur was found carved on the inside of a bathroom door in the Spence Laboratories on the campus of the University of Iowa. The university sent maintenance workers to the site to sand off the racist message.
University of Iowa President Bruce Harreld issued a statement that read in part, “This act is offensive to our community and will not be tolerated. An investigation is underway and if the individual(s) responsible are identified, appropriate actions will be taken.”
