SDSU Statement Regarding Incident at Zura Hall
"All students have a right to a safe campus environment free of racist threats."
Last night, a racial slur was written on a dry-erase board on the door of an African-American student who lives in SDSU’s Zura Hall. The incident was reported to university administrators and an investigation is underway.
Representatives of SDSU Police, SDSU Residential Life Staff and SDSU’s Office of Diversity met with the student earlier today to discuss the incident and her concerns.
The university is also issuing a statement to students, faculty and staff condemning the incident and encouraging anyone with information about it to come forward.
“All students have a right to a safe campus environment free of racist threats,” said SDSU Vice President for Student Affairs Jim Kitchen. “As a campus community we stand together in support of diversity.”
