Dear KU Campus Community,

Last night around midnight, University Police received a report of vandalism to eight buildings on North Campus in the form of graffiti. This matter is currently under investigation. 

University Police are seeking assistance from the campus community. Anyone with information should contact University Police at 610-683-4002. Anonymous tips can be provided through Berks County Crime Alert.

The safety and security of our campus community is paramount. As we have stated before, Kutztown University highly values and respects all campus constituents and celebrates diversity. We will continue to advocate for an environment wherein all those associated with our university can feel valued and safe.
Vandalism to our campus is not acceptable. It is punishable by law and can result in serious consequences for the offenders. Vandalism impacts the quality and appearance of our campus, it impacts us financially, and places a strain on our facilities department.
