Franklin & Marshall – Statement from President Porterfield, Dean Hazlett and Dean Taber
(Description note, “This evening, students reported a drawing in a classroom in the Life Sciences and Philosophy Building that had the appearance of a swastika in the middle of a Jewish Star. The Department of Public Safety (DPS) was contacted, a report was filed and an investigation is underway.  We condemn in the strongest terms all incidents of identity-based hatred and intolerance. Images that are meant to demean, harass, or intimidate others have no place in our community. We ask the individual who left this symbol in the classroom to come forward.  And we ask anyone who may know who this individual is to communicate directly with any of us or with DPS Chief Bill McHale. This anti-Semitic graffiti comes at a time when others on campus and across the country are reporting troubling incidents.”)
