MADISON – Last Thursday, pictures from a party on the UW Oshkosh campus depicting racist words and images were posted on social media. In response, Chancellor Andrew Leavitt sent an email responding to this incident to the entire campus and called for a meeting Friday at Reeve Memorial Union.

Representative Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) released the following statement regarding these events on campus:

gordon_hintz“Racism has no place on campus or in our community. The hateful words and symbols these students used are contrary to everything UW Oshkosh stands for. As an ally of the students harmed by these events, I hear you and will work with you to improve our campus climate.

“I appreciate the leadership of Chancellor Leavitt and all those who confront racism and bigotry while pushing for a more inclusive, tolerant, and respectful campus, community and world.”
