A racist video surfaced Thursday at the University of Duluth, so the administration sent an email to students and staff to alert them about it, the Duluth News Tribune reports.

It was not clear where the video was posted or how it was circulated, if at all. University officials would not say whether the person who created the video was a student at UMD, the newspaper reported. An administrator said the university "followed up" on the off-campus incident and that proper steps had been taken to address it.

In related news, in July, the university dropped its support for the controversial Un-Fair anti-racism campaign, the Duluth News Tribune reported.

University leaders have tried to unite the campus after a 2010 incident involving racial epithets aimed at a black student written publicly on Facebook by white students, the News Tribune reports. CityPages had more on that incident.
