SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — White supremacist business cards were found on the Texas State University campus Thursday, according to a letter by University President Denise M Trauth.

“I think many of you share in my anger that this has happened several times since November 9, 2016. Racism will not be tolerated at Texas State University,” said Trauth in her letter to students, faculty and staff.

Earlier in April of this year, several people were detained and issued trespass warnings for posting racist fliers on the Texas State University campus in San Marcos.

According to Trauth, these incidents involving hateful rhetoric is why the school established the Council on Inclusive Excellence. This council is led by Ameerah McBride, chief diversity officer, and works to evaluate and offer feedback on issues related to university climate and inclusiveness.

“I will work with the council to implement initiatives to help our students, faculty, and staff feel safe, included, valued, and respected,” stated Trauth.

Anyone who discovers racist material on the Texas State Campus is advised to call the University Police Department at (512) 245-2805
