"This morning, four 'post-its' were found on the door of one room in one of our residence halls; two were found on another. The 'post-its' included political language; vile, racist comments; and a swastika.
"We are shocked by this. This kind of appalling behavior has no place on our campus, and we will not tolerate abuse or intimidation of members of the University community.
"We have brought in the NYPD to investigate, and will assist them in any way possible with their investigation. We have offered support to the rooms' occupants. And NYU will remain focused on the safety, well-being, and support of our students, and on fostering a diverse, inclusive, and respectful community in which these kind of cowardly, ghastly, anonymous actions have no place."
-- NYU Spokesman John Beckman
