Update Nov. 5, 2020 12:07 p.m.

Florida Gulf Coast University president Dr. Mike Martin released a statement saying campus police believes it has identified the person responsible for the white supremacy propaganda found on campus.

Martin said the person of interest is not affiliated with FGCU and is not a current or former student or employee and similar images have been put up on other campuses including the University of Central Florida.

Original post

White supremacy stickers were placed on several buildings on the campus of Florida Gulf Coast University over the weekend.

The stickers read “Hitler is Right,” and “Smash White Guilt” and were found on at least two buildings on FGCU’s main campus.

On Sunday university president Dr. Mike Martin sent an email condemning the messages, saying they were an “anathema to the values, standards and conduct of the university’s community."

Martin also said the search for the culprits is ongoing, and if the messages were linked to anyone associated with FGCU, that association will end immediately.
