Campus officials at the University of Rochester issued a statement after dozens of anti-semitic flyers were found on campus.
The flyers were found on a printer at the Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender, Sexuality and Women's Studies.
University spokesperson Sara Miller stated:
"Anti-Semitic messages were faxed to a small number of University departments on Monday, Nov. 5."
"These messages are reprehensible and cowardly, and they are contrary to the University's values."
"The University Department of Public Safety is working with law enforcement to actively investigate this incident."
This incident came a week after a swastika was left inside an elevator at the Eastman School of Music, also in Rochester, New York.
