USAC Elections 2024SJP and UC Divest Coalition Demonstrations at UCLA

Submission: UC must protect Jewish students, combat anti-Semitism

(Jintak Han/Daily Bruin)

By Natalie Delgadillo

May 20, 2015 12:14 a.m.

Dear President Napolitano and the University of California Board of Regents,

We are 521 University of California alumni who are deeply concerned about the safety of Jewish students at our alma mater.

We heartily commend the UC Berkeley, UCLA and UC Santa Barbara student senates for responding to the alarming escalation of anti-Semitic activity on UC campuses by unanimously passing resolutions which condemn anti-Semitism and resolve that their respective student senates will adopt the U.S. Department of State’s definition of anti-Semitism for identifying anti-Semitic activity.

We also applaud you for your own statement condemning anti-Semitism. Taking a public stand is a very important first step. However, it is critical that you do more to ensure the safety of Jewish students at the UC.

We join the coalition of 23 organizations that have recently written to you, urging you to take the following steps in order to adequately address the rising tide of anti-Jewish bigotry at the UC :

  1. Formally adopt the U.S. Department of State’s definition of anti-Semitism in order to identify all forms of anti-Semitic expression on UC campuses.
  2. Charge UC chancellors with training campus administrators and staff involved in discrimination prevention, student affairs and equity, diversity and inclusion, to identify anti-Semitic behavior, and direct them to develop clear protocols for addressing campus anti-Semitism with the same promptness and vigor as they do other forms of racial, ethnic and gender bigotry and discrimination.
  3. Charge UC chancellors with developing initiatives for educating the campus community about anti-Semitism and anti-Jewish discrimination.

No student should feel harassed, intimidated, threatened or marginalized. We implore you to better protect Jewish students at the UC.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
