The seal of the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center on 4th Street was vandalized last night or early this morning with graffiti.
According to KCBD-TV, the graffiti read, 'No Muslims.'
Once authorities investigated the scene, workers cleaned off the seal and removed the vandalism, Mary Croyle, spokesperson and executive director for communication and marketing, said in a statement.
"It is a sad day at TTUHSC as we awoke to our beloved seal defaced with intolerant language," she said. "Our diverse university family is made up of students, researchers, educators and health care providers who make a positive impact throughout our world.
"Such harmful and offensive words truly go against the grain of who we are, as we are here to serve and heal all people. We will not tolerate such acts, and we are working closely with law enforcement. After authorities investigated the scene, our crew swiftly removed the vandalism."
