Anti-Semitism: On the University Campus

Brandeis University’s Cohen Center for Modern Jewish Studies released a report titled “Anti-Semitism and the College Campus: Perceptions and Realities” in July 2015, which provided a glimpse into the everyday anti-Semitism present on American and Canadian college campuses. Among other things, the report found that one-quarter of undergraduate students reported hostility towards Israel on their campus being a problem, and three-quarters have been exposed to or overheard anti-Semitic statements on their campus. The report concluded that the schools with the largest percentage of anti-Semitic sentiments were Canadian Universities and schools in the University of California system. Approximately nine percent of undergraduate students reported that anti-Semitic and anti-Israel sentiments from their professors became a problem for them during the year.
