Campus Police Chief Matt Carmichael says the incident is also being investigated as a hate crime.

“We found a racial slur that had been written on a chalkboard inside one of the facilities that had been vandalized.”

Carmichael says in Davis, apparent hate crimes like this affect the community far greater than broken windows.

“We’re a very diverse community, we’re a very open campus and things like this are hurtful.”

In a statement, UC Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi said she was "incensed and heartbroken."

UC Davis experienced a wave of such incidents three years ago, when swastikas were found around campus, and a campus center for lesbian and gay students was vandalized.
