The University of Maine is among major colleges and universities nationwide that have received racist, anti-Semitic fliers on printers and fax machines on campus.

University of Maine Police Department and information technology officials are investigating.

Apparently several fliers were delivered to printers at UMaine campus locations this week and two fliers appeared on printers in the Memorial Union today, March 25, at which time the Division of Student Life was notified.

According to national news reports, the same single-page flier has printed out on machines at the University of Massachusetts, Northeastern, Princeton University, the University of Southern California and others.

Members of the University community in offices and computer labs that receive these fliers are asked to report them to the IT Help Center, 581-2506.

For anyone in the community with questions or concerns, please contact the Division of Student Life, 581-1406.
