They said the university is taking the flyer very seriously.

"The flyer and its message are the antithesis of the values that are the foundation of our University," the letter read. "It is not designed to spark civil discourse or encourage thoughtful debate. Its intentions are to incite violence, and there is no place for that here or in our society."
