Unauthorized postings of signs with hateful messages were reported outside of the Students Advocating For Equality (SAFE) office.
SAFE is a student club committed to ending discrimination against sexual and gender expression through educational programming, according to an email from SU President Laurie Carter.
“At Shippensburg University, we strive to provide an environment where the people of our campus community feel safe,” Carter said.
The defacing is in violation of the Student Code of Conduct. It does not meet the standards of the Shippensburg community and is not what SU stands for. The incident is being investigated by campus police, according to Carter.
The Office of the Dean of Students, the PRIDE Center, the Women’s Center and the Counseling Center are available to students with concerns.
The SU Office of University Communications and Marketing said no other information is available at this time.
Information regarding these acts are encouraged to call campus police at 717-477-1444 or report anonymously online using the incident reporting form.
