UW-Madison officials: Signs addressing discrimination considered 'unauthorized material'

MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Officials at the University of Wisconsin-Madison say signs addressing discrimination issues on campus were part of a coordinated campaign. 

One sign says, "UW for whites only," and another reads, "UW does not care about trans folks."

Initially, UW issued a tweet saying they removed the signs, and campus police were investigating.

The school later said in a statement that the posters were part of a campaign to draw attention to experiences of under-represented students.

Officials say while they support freedom of expression, the signs are considered unauthorized material.
