Multiple posters aimed at Central Connecticut President Dr. Zulma Toro have been found spread across campus, labelling her as “LGBT pandering” and accusing her of “creating racial division.”

CCSU Media Relations Officer Janice Palmer confirmed that police are investigating the posters and will look at surveillance footage. Three posters are currently known of, one found in Welte Garage and another in Ebenezer D. Bassett Hall, Palmer said, as well as a third in Maria Sanford Hall found by students.

An official statement from Dr. Toro or the university has not yet been provided, but Palmer stated that CCSU is “trying to improve the campus climate and campus culture” in spite of the poster’s message insinuating otherwise.

“[Dr. Toro] follows up on everything. She’s someone who wants to fix the issues that are out there,” Palmer said.

Palmer added that anyone with concerns about the campus climate can report them to with their name or anonymously and that Dr. Toro will see and address them.

Additionally, poster sightings can be reported to campus police.
