SUNY Geneseo dealing with another incident of racist graffiti

Nov 30, 2016

Officials at SUNY Geneseo say they are investigating another incident of racist graffiti.

This time, it was the letters KKK found scrawled on the side of a gazebo on campus.  The graffiti has since been removed.

The comes less than two weeks after a swastika was painted on a wall in a common area inside Nassau Dormitory.

College president Denise Battles issued a statement to the campus community saying the college stands in solidarity against these acts and she says the campus is planning educational programming to affirm its commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Battles says she has heard from many students, faculty and alumni in recent weeks reaffirming their support for an inclusive and compassionate campus.
