Swastikas reportedly drawn in International House

University police are investigating a report of three swastikas drawn on walls in International House last week.

Darrell Darnell, GW’s senior associate vice president for safety and security, said in a statement that the walls on the first floor of the residence hall have been repainted since UPD received the report Saturday.

Members of several fraternities and sororities are housed in the residence hall at 2201 Virginia Ave.

The University held a meeting with International House residents Wednesday to “discuss this disturbing incident.”

“The University does not tolerate actions that make any member of the GW community feel unsafe,” Darnell said. “The University offers clear mechanisms for reporting such behavior through GWPD and has policies in place to support a safe campus for all.”

Darnell added that staff members have spoken with students and parents about the incident to show GW’s “comprehensive response.”
