Dear Lawrence Community,
Yesterday, members of our community discovered two fliers containing hate speech on campus. Campus Safety and university officials have contacted the Appleton Police Department and an investigation is underway. We have learned from the police that similar fliers have been found in other locations in Appleton.
We are a community committed to the safety of all its members. This kind of activity is abhorrent and unacceptable. Statements such as those made in the fliers are entirely inconsistent with the values of the Lawrence community.
If you have information about these fliers, please contact Campus Safety at 920-832-6999. You may also wish to file a Bias Incident Report, which can be submitted anonymously. If you have personal concerns or would like to learn about actions the university is taking to prevent bias related incidents, please contact Kimberly Barrett, vice president for diversity and inclusion and associate dean of the faculty at 920-832-7451.
