BELOIT, Wis. (AP) - A southern Wisconsin college is reacting to the latest incident of racist messages on campus.

Beloit College held a town hall meeting Wednesday after a racial slur was spray painted on the side of a dorm. More than 100 students and faculty attended.

The Beloit Daily News reports the vandalism happened early Friday morning. But dean of students Christina Klawitter says she wasn’t notified until 6 p.m. that day.

Klawitter told the forum the college is still trying to find out who’s responsible. She says racism is “not OK in our community,” and urged anyone who sees something similar to come forward.

A similar slur was written on a chalkboard in a classroom a couple of weeks ago, and posters hanging on the office doors of African-American teachers were defaced.
