Stanford University police are again investigating a swastika that was drawn on a campus building.
A security officer found the swastika, which was drawn with a blue grease pencil on a building pillar at the Graduate School of Business on Saturday evening, Stanford said in press release. The university thinks the swastika was drawn sometime between Wednesday, Oct. 18, at 6 p.m. and when the security officer noticed it.
Despite being "reminiscent" of these incidences, this symbol differs in size, color and style, according to the Department of Public Safety.
"There are no suspects in the appearances of any of the symbols, and police continue to investigate each instance," the university said.
University officials are again condemning the vandalism. President Marc Tessier-Lavigne said Stanford has "zero tolerance for such appalling acts, which go counter to our fundamental values."
Susie Brubaker-Cole, vice provost for student affairs, and Jane Shaw, dean for religious life, said they "reject the hate and bigotry that it symbolizes.
"This and similar incidents targeting any of our communities bring feelings of vulnerability to many," they wrote in a blog post on the incident. "We reaffirm our commitment to working every day to foster a community where all feel an abiding sense of belonging and well-being."
Stanford's annual Safety, Security and Fire Report, released earlier this month, shows an uptick in hate crimes on campus. They have doubled since 2014, with three hate crime reports that year, two in 2015 and six last year.
Anyone who was targeted in or witness to a hate crime at Stanford can report the incident online through the university's Acts of Intolerance Protocol.
