UNC Police are investigating after “several anti-Semitic posters” were found on bookshelves and tables in Davis Library.
“I am extremely disappointed and appalled that anyone would write these abhorrent messages and direct them toward members of our Jewish community,” interim chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz wrote in a message to the campus community.
“This behavior conflicts with the University’s long-standing commitment to fostering an environment where all students, faculty and staff can be free of harassment,” he wrote.
This is the second time since Guskiewicz has taken over as interim chancellor in February that he has written to the campus after “the discovery of racist or hateful messages on our campus.”
Two people were arrested Monday for allegedly vandalizing two spaces on the campus. Guskiewicz wrote that police were investigating the “racist actions” after the Unsung Founders memorial and an installment near the Hanes Art Center were vandalized.
“While we believe the two incidents are unrelated,” Guskiewicz wrote Wednesday, “these actions do not reflect our values.”
Anyone with information regarding the posters on bookshelves and tables in Davis Library is asked to call 911.
