Nazi-themed posters were found in various spots around the SUNY Purchase campus on the last night of Hanukah.
University Police are investigating the situation and have identified a suspect who they believe is responsible for the action. They also are working closely with the Westchester District Attorney’s office.
“Messages of hate, while becoming more and more prevalent in our country, have no place on our campus and will be treated with the utmost severity,” said Officer in Charge and Vice President for Student Affairs Dennis Craig.
Craig says the campus plans on collaborating with Hillels of Westchester and the Office of Diversity to put together a dialogue on diversity in the coming weeks, into the start of next semester.
