ASUN responds to recent vandalism

RENO, Nev. – The Associated Students of the University of Nevada (ASUN) was recently made aware of vandalism that includes the carving of swastikas into the walls of the women’s restroom on the first floor of Lincoln Hall.

Symbols of hate are not welcome on our campus. They contradict what it means to be a part of the Wolf Pack. ASUN and its leadership pride ourselves in our vision on the vital issues for our students, our campus and our community. We expect to serve as a catalyst for the betterment of our society. This vandalism advances a harmful ideology that brings fear to our colleagues and promotes violence across the country. Our campus’ values of integrity and inclusiveness cannot coexist with symbols of hate.

This type of vandalism is reprehensible and has no place on our campus. ASUN is committed to making this a better, more inclusive University and student community. We ask anyone with information on this hate-based vandalism to come forward any information including the identities of the perpetrator by contacting police services at unrpd@police.unr.edu.
