University condemns swastikas
HUNTINGTON — Officials at Marshall University have condemned the defacement of on-campus posters with swastikas.
Two copies of a Department of History course poster had the symbols drawn over the face of a public figure, officials told The Herald-Dispatch.
The incident at Marshall brought a swift rebuke from President Jerome Gilbert.
“We teach our students that hate is not welcome,” he said. “Any attempt to target or intimidate anyone, or to create a hostile environment, will not be tolerated.”
