January 25, 2021: Graffiti Incident on Peabody Campus

I am writing to let you know that graffiti resembling a swastika was found on the Peabody campus on the left wall of the East Tower, near the elevator, earlier today. 

Please know that we have taken steps to begin investigating this incident, including notifying Campus Security and the Office of Institutional Equity.  We will keep you informed of any developments surrounding this incident as we are able.

It goes without saying that any expression of hate on our campus will not be tolerated.  If we are able to confirm the meaning of these marks and identify those responsible, we will take immediate action.  Resources are available for our students if needed at https://studentaffairs.jhu.edu/counselingcenter/.

If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me, your supervisor, or OIE directly.
