Last weekend, students discovered racist writing on their dorm name tags in West Quad.
Wednesday night, students gathered at the Michigan Union and were met by University of Michigan President Mark Schlissel and other administrators to discuss a lack of response to racially charged incidents that occurred on campus.
Between student and faculty discussions with administrators Wednesday night about action on campus regarding incidents of racism, a 24-year-old man unaffiliated with the University was arrested outside the Michigan Union for disorderly conduct after shouting racial slurs at students of color.
In addition to racist writing found in West Quad on campus, a popular Ann Arbor mural was defaced with similar writing and support of white supremacist and mass murderer Dylann Roof.
Following the incident of racism, the Michigan Community Scholars Program gathered in solidarity with students of color and those affected by the writings. Faculty spoke against the hateful speech and acknowledged that there was an ongoing investigation into the incident.
