‘White Student Union' Fliers Spark Controversy at WCU

School officials say fliers were an effort against racism.

“White Student Union” fliers caused quite a stir on West Chester University’s campus Thursday.

The fliers that announced the formation of a “White Student Union” were part of an effort to organize students who are against racism, according to school officials.

After the WCU community voiced concerns over the fliers, the university launched an investigation that revealed the fliers were put together with “a totally different agenda in mind” and that in no way was the formation of the group racist.

"It wasn't meant to be harmful," University spokesperson Pam Sheridan tells the Daily Local News. "It was designed to draw anti-racists together, to get a sort of reaction."

However, in an effort to avoid further controversy, the fliers have been removed from campus.
