Racism reared its ugly head inside a resident hall on the University of St. Thomas campus in St. Paul last week. 

According to St. Thomas President Dr. Julie Sullivan, someone wrote "N----- go back" on a student's door inside Brady Hall, noting that, "regrettably, this is not the first time an incident like this has occurred" at the college. 

Sullivan condemned the "act of hate" and said it won't be tolerated, calling on everyone to make sure "this kind of cowardly act has no place" at the university or anywhere else. 

An investigation to find out who's responsible for the racism is underway and Sullivan is asking anyone with information to contact school authorities, which can be done anonymously by calling (651) 962-TIPS (8477) or by emailing pstips@stthomas.edu

The student or students involved will be go through a student conduct process and face possible expulsion. 

"Regrettably, this is not the first time an incident like this has occurred so let us be very clear: All are welcome here," Sullivan wrote.
