GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP — Campus police are looking to identify three people seen putting up white nationalist flyers around Stockton University’s campus Sunday night.
Images taken from the campus surveillance video system show three unidentified people believed to have hung the unauthorized flyers on campus property.
The flyers, which feature logos for the “alt-right” and the white supremacist group “Identity Evropa” were spotted at various locations on the campus and were not authorized to be posted, according to the university.
The college was recently the focus of controversy when it removed the bust of its founder Richard Stockton. Officials say they plan to exhibit the bust in a different space, with more historical context. Stockton, a slave owner, signed the Declaration of Independence.
A representative from the university said the unauthorized flyers were reported to campus police and removed Monday. Students have been advised if they see more flyers to let campus authorities know.
Stockton University said campus police are working with the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Officer on whether charges need to be filed. The investigation is ongoing.
