EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIU-E administrators are saying racism will not be tolerated after two incidents on campus that have police investigating a note left on student’s door in Cougar Village.

A student claims someone left a racist note directed at African-Americans at his apartment door using the n-word.

Police are now looking for the person who wrote it.

Someone also painted a confederate flag on “the rock,” a boulder on campus that students use to promote events.

The university is offering counseling and saying it is creating an immediate response team for hate crimes on campus.
