On Wednesday, March 25 during a Zoom class session in the College of Business Administration, an unknown source "displayed repugnant racial content," according to a message sent out by the LMU Bias Incident Response Team (BIRT). 

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and Public Safety are all conducting investigations into the incident. 

According to the New York Times, Zoom meetings are getting increasingly interrupted with graphic and inappropriate content as the number of users continues to rise during the pandemic. 

To combat this, starting on Monday, March 30 there will be stricter security features enforced in LMU Zoom sessions to maintain a safe environment for students and staff, according to a message from ITS sent out earlier today. 

The Loyolan is following this story as it develops. 

Molly Jean Box is a sophomore journalism major from Boulder, Colorado. Her favorite part of working for the Loyolan the free pizza. In her free time, she likes to think about the Loyolan.
