Stanford public safety officers are currently investigating the drawings as a hate-motivated crime. According to the university, the person or people who made the drawings could be subject to legal or disciplinary actions.
"Purposely intimidating and threatening people based on protected identities is antithetical to Stanford's values," the university said in a statement. "Antisemitism and other acts of hate and intolerance are unacceptable on this campus."
Stanford officials did not respond to a request for comment on March 13 about updates on the investigation into the drawings.
The university also said that the drawings found on the dorm room door do not seem to be connected to two incidents on Feb. 28 and March 3 in which multiple swastikas, a racial slur and the letters "KKK" were found carved into multiple men's bathrooms on campus.
The dorm where the drawings were found is expected to hold a meeting on Tuesday, March 14, to discuss the incident.
Those with information about the drawings are encouraged to report it to the Stanford Department of Public Safety by calling 650-329-2413.
Students who experience acts of bias or discrimination are also encouraged to report them through the Protected Identity Harm Report process, which can be found at protectedidentityharm.stanford.edu.
