“Stanford University officials are looking into three symbols that appeared to be Nazi swastikas drawn in locations on campus in recent weeks. The symbols were found on whiteboards in a dormitory on Nov. 9, Stanford officials said in a news release. The symbols were photographed by students who discovered them, and then were erased. Stanford University Department of Public Safety is investigating the incident, and will determine whether it will be considered a hate crime, Stanford said. The university proposed various initiatives shortly after the symbols were reported, including ‘accelerating’ the work of an existing Jewish Advisory Committee, which was created this year to improve Jewish student life on campus. Stanford said it plans on implementing more ‘longer-term’ solutions to address antisemitism and improve safety for its Jewish community, according to a news release.” (11/19/23)
