Swastika Found on UM Bathroom Wall Near Jewish Studies Building

A swastika was found drawn on a University of Miami bathroom wall near the Miller Center for Contemporary Judaic Studies. Another swastika was found in the same area almost a year ago.

President Donna Shalala released a statement condemning the act:

On Tuesday someone drew a swastika on a wall in the men's restroom near the Miller Center for Contemporary Judaic Studies in the Merrick Building. This incident and a similar one that occurred last November in the same location have been reported to University Police and are under investigation. Defacement of University property is a crime--and to do so with this symbol of hatred, which is offensive to all of us, is a despicable and cowardly act. The University of Miami is a place where all are welcome in a spirit of learning and acceptance. There is no place in our community for bigotry and intolerance. I condemn these acts in the strongest of terms on behalf of the University.
