Arizona State University administrators reacted Friday after racially charged graffiti was found written on campus bathroom stalls. 

University officials released the following statement: 

"The graffiti that a student found in an ASU dorm is saddening and does not represent the views of the ASU community. Ensuring the safety and security of our students is a top priority, and the University undertakes extensive efforts to ensure that our community is inclusive and respectful of everyone. ASU is a place where open debate can thrive and honest disagreements can be explored, but not when hateful rhetoric is used. This is not who we are."

An ASU representative also said that this appears to be an isolated incident and that campus police are reviewing video cameras in the area to find the culprit.

The exact wording of the graffiti was not released.
