Support for the CMU Community After Transphobic Vandalism 

"I was distressed to recently learn that there was an act of transphobic vandalism on our campus that involved the defacement of inclusive restroom signage. I write today to affirm that university leadership stands alongside our fellow TIN and gender expansive community members in condemning this behavior. Our community is saddened to bear witness to these forms of hatred targeting trans identities - specifically trans women. The CMU Police Department has been engaged to conduct a thorough investigation of the incidents." 

- Dr. Wanda Heading-Grant in a campus statement released on behalf of senior leadership.
