Stanislaus State spokeswoman Rosalee Rush was not upset with the demonstration. She called it an exercise of the students' freedom of speech.

"It was important for (Junn) to hear the students, and it was important for her to give the students a voice," said Rush.

Rush says the school's president is working on a campaign to encourage free speech and ways to combat hateful rhetoric.

"She's going to commission us to work with the students, work with the campus community, and the larger community to come up with messaging that counteracts that (hate)," Rush said. "Academia is here to raise voices and have productive dialogue."

Rush says they'll use the words as an educational opportunity.

The school did not confirm Damigo's status with the university, citing privacy concerns. However, Rush did say if there is ever an immediate danger to someone on the campus, the president will take "swift and immediate action."
