ST. LOUIS -- A pair of racial incidents at Saint Louis University has some students calling for a stronger administrative response.

In late April, a group of candles set outside a dorm for a vigil were rearranged into a swastika symbol. More recently, a projector in a campus ballroom was altered to display several racist and anti-gay messages.

KMOX-AM reports the university’s Black Student Alliance held a news conference Tuesday to demand more diversity on campus.

Interim President William Kauffman attended the event and said the university will meet with the black student group and other student organizations to discuss proposed changes.
