University of South Alabama’s President Tony Waldrop released an email from his office stating an academic department on campus received anti-Semitic messages via fax.

The email stated that the faxed messages have been received by other universities in the past and did not mention USA specifically.

No more information is being released at the time due to the incident being an ongoing investigation, according to Bob Lowry, director of communications and media relations at USA.

“As a university, those things [the anti-Semitic messages] cannot be tolerated,” Dr. Paul Frazier, USA’s chief diversity and inclusion officer, said. “They breed exclusiveness and we hope to bring about change to the university. As a community and a society, we have to be inclusive in nature.” 

“Messages such as these have no place in our University community, and are in opposition to everything the University of South Alabama stands for,” Waldrop stated in the email. “This incident reminds us to stand united, as a community, to support and respect one another. Our mutual respect and support for each other is the best defense against these kinds of despicable actions.

USA police encouraged anyone with information to call 460-6312 or use the LiveSafe app to make a report.
