AUBURN, AL (WTVM) – Reports of controversial fliers going up around Auburn University were discussed at a meeting on campus Monday evening.
The AUSPLC invited Auburn students, faculty, and staff to an open dialogue with a panel of university representatives to "enhance understanding and communication about Auburn's campus policies and the social climate."
According to the Auburn Plainsman, the so-called anti-semitic fliers, which also went up around UGA and the University of Alabama, are from an alt-right group claiming to be a "White Student Union" affiliated with Auburn University.
But at Tuesday night's meeting, AU officials stated this is a group that's not an officially registered student organization, with a website based out of Florida.
"It's very important we have an awareness around it, have a sense of what is happening, then be clear about how we will respond institutionally. I think some of that has been done but it's still more to do," said Dr. Taffye Clayton, Vice President/ Associate Provost of Auburn University.
The Auburn Plainsman reports the group, claiming to be the Whites of the Alt-Right Educating Auburn Gentiles for Liberation and Empowerment, or WAR EAGLE, started distributing fliers last week across campus.
Auburn Student Affairs is looking into it.
