WESTFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

Westfield State University is taking action after several racially charged incidents on-campus.

Racial slurs have been written on student's dorm rooms and most recently, one of those victims was allegedly attacked by three men on-campus.

Now, the college is saying enough is enough.

WSU President Ramon Torrecilha said that they are working with state police to increase security, add cameras to campus, and form a bias incident response team.

Other things include increased counseling resources, mandatory workshops in residence halls, and an hotline for support.
