Several flyers expressing white supremacist beliefs were found in the O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs on Wednesday night, according to an email from SPEA dean Sian Mooney to students Thursday morning. 

IU spokesperson Chuck Carney also said a SPEA employee found a flyer on a bulletin board Thursday morning. 

Carney confirmed he does not know who posted the flyer, and the IU Police Department is investigating the incident.

Carney said the university is taking quick action and will not allow flyers like this to stay on any bulletin board on campus. He said the university will not tolerate these flyers because they go against the views IU stands for.

Carney said the university does not want any students to feel unsafe on campus because of these flyers.
