Westfield State University has opened an investigation after a racial slur was written on student’s door on the Massachusetts college campus.
Westfield State University President Ramon Torrecilha swiftly denounced the incident both in a written message to the campus community and at an address to students Thursday morning.
" This deplorable. This is not acceptable. This is not part of who we are as a community," said Torrecilha.
He vowed that those who are found responsible will be held accountable.
According to MassLive, the slur was found on the door of a black student in New Hall, an on campus housing complex for undergraduates.
