Thursday night the Jahari Dance Troupe reported a possible bias incident at the Black Cultural Center.
The dancers saw the words "white supremacy" partially written on a mirror in one of the rooms at the center.
The University sent out a statement in regards to the incident:
The script of adhesive left on the mirror in the Black Cultural Center does not appear to have been done intentionally. Because we are not certain, however, the university will continue to investigate. Our goal is to ensure a climate that is inclusive and respects all individuals.
At 4 p.m. on Friday, the Purdue Anti-Racism Coalition met at the center to discuss a response.
Purdue Police Chief John Cox attended and updated the group. He said the event is still not confirmed as a bias incident and that an investigation is underway.
One possibility, he said, is that the phrase was accidentally left on the mirror after a class had been taught in the room. This, however, has not been confirmed.
