Student Center Graffitied in Winter Break Bias Incident
By Julia Barth, Editor in Chief
The Canisius community received an email on Thursday morning about a bias incident that was reported on campus over the winter break. The Bias Resource and Response Team (BRRT), which people can send anonymous reports to, received information about graffiti that was found on the Student Center, which was removed shortly afterwards.
The college has not identified the person responsible for the incident but reached out to the campus to inform faculty, staff and students of the report while also reiterating Canisius’s Jesuit values, like being people for and with others. The email ended by saying, “At Canisius, we seek to respect and care for each human being in their entirety, regardless of their identity. It is our different experiences, identities and perspectives that make this community special and creates a rich environment for learning and leadership.” The BRRT has an email that anyone on campus can reach out to (firstname.lastname@example.org), or people can submit an anonymous tip through a link found the MyCanisius Portal or in the email sent out on Thursday.
