Officials at Austin Peay State University are investigating the six rainbow-colored nooses hung on the university's campus in Clarksville, Tennessee, on Monday.
The nooses were removed after school officials received complaints from students who saw the display.
The university's president called the incident "deeply disturbing" and added "regardless of the intent, the display has no place on our campus."
