Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The University of Dayton is investigating after a racial slur was found written in the snow outside a dorm.

The campus sent out a notice saying it happened outside Marycrest Hall Thursday morning.

Officials say they met with the student to gather information and offer support.

UD’s President Dr. Eric Spina released a statement saying, in part: “We condemn the expression of hateful speech as incompatible with our Catholic, Marianist values and our commitment to create an environment where all feel safe, supported, valued, and respected. We are all called to safeguard the dignity of every person in thought, word, and action, and to work together to strengthen our sense of community.”
