The president of Armstrong State University published a Facebook post condemning racist and violent graffiti discovered in a university restroom.

President Jennifer Frum says a police investigation is underway into the message. The university is currently looking for the person or persons responsible.

President Frum stated in her message, “While this appears to be an isolated incident, we are taking it very seriously. We will not tolerate language that threatens any members of the Armstrong community. This incident does not reflect our values as an institution. I assure you that we are making decisions that put the safety of our students, faculty, and staff first.”

Armstrong officials say they do not feel there is an immediate threat at this time. They released the following statement Wednesday evening: 

The safety of the Armstrong community is our top priority, and we take any incident of this nature very seriously. University Police will increase campus patrols while we continue to investigate. Investigators are interviewing people about the case. If you have any information concerning this case, please contact University Police at 912.344.3333.
