Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - The University of Rochester is working to determine where dozens of anti-Semitic propaganda flyers originated.

The flyers were found Monday morning on a printer at the Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender, Sexuality and Women's Studies on the River Campus at the university.

An email sent out to students and staff at the Institute, calling it "one example of a wider pattern of such incidents" at the college campus and the Eastman School of Music.

The deans and University of Rochester president Richard Feldman were contacted, along with public safety, in an effort to investigate the origin of the flyers.

University of Rochester spokesperson Sara Miller released a statement condemning the flyers and the message behind them.

"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 comes one week after a swastika was left inside an elevator on the Eastman School of Music campus in downtown Rochester.
