DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - The president of University of Dubuque says two students seen in a photo posted on social media that appeared to show them in blackface showed “spectacularly poor judgment.”

The Telegraph Herald say (http://bit.ly/2lTo601 ) University President Jeffrey Bullock wrote in a statement that the social media post, which included the words “Celebrate black history,” is at odds with the university’s culture “in which diversity is not only appreciated, but embraced.”

University spokeswoman Stacey Ortman says officials were informed late Monday night of the post. She says the university is working with the two white, female students to help them make better choices in the future.

The university is not naming the students.
