Princeton University's Department of Public Safety is investigating the discovery of anti-semitic messages on several networked printers, officials said Friday.

The flyers were found Thursday and Friday on printers in several buildings around campus according to the university.

"These flyers are offensive and contrary to the values of the University, which is committed to creating and maintaining an environment free from discrimination and harassment. Princeton attaches great importance to mutual respect, and we deplore expressions of hatred directed against any individual or group," Vice Provost for Institutional Equity and Inclusion Michele Minter said in a statement.

The university did not disclose the content of the messages.

Anti-Semitic messages also were reported on printers at Smith College, Mt. Holyoke and the University of Massachusetts Amherst campus, according to New England Public Radio . WGN TV reported printers at DePaul University in Chicago also had messages.

Anyone with information about the Princeton flyers should contact the Department of Public Safety at 609-258-1000.
