DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - The president of a university in southwest Ohio is encouraging students to anonymously report any violence and hate speech that might occur on campus.

Cheryl Schrader, president of Wright State University, sent the email message out to students at the Dayton-area school the first day of classes. It urges them to counter negative speech while being willing to engage in civil and productive conversations with people who have different points of view.

The email encourages students to report violence and hate speech through the Dayton-area university’s anonymous reporting system or the school’s Office of Equity and Inclusion.

Schrader says the university is opposed to discrimination in any form.

A university spokesman says the email wasn’t prompted by any campus events.

It comes weeks after a violent rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
