MADISON (AP) — University of Wisconsin Oshkosh officials are investigating a sign in an off-campus home that said liberals, Jews, Muslims, gays and Hmong people aren't wanted.

University spokeswoman Mandy Potts says officials became aware of a photo of the sign Thursday circulating on social media. A Twitter user who posted that photo posted another of a swastika hanging on a wall during a party at what she said was the same house.

Chancellor Andrew Leavitt sent a campus-wide email saying the school was aware of "racist messages and hateful symbols involving our students." He called a forum Friday to discuss the images.
