The Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law actively develops legal and policy research relating to the civil and human rights of the Jewish people and justice for all. LDB's research focuses especially but not exclusively on the problem of anti-Semitism in higher education.

  “With the rapid rise of campus anti-Semitism and anti-Israeli incitement, which has reached epidemic proportions across the United States, the Louis D. Brandeis Center is an idea whose time has come. It is fulfilling a vital function in protecting the civil rights of Jewish students throughout the nation.”

Campus Anti-Semitism
Over 40% of Jewish American college students report that they have experienced or are aware of anti-Semitism on their campuses. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has announced that campus anti-Semitism “is a serious problem which warrants further attention.” Campus anti-Semitism can include subjecting Jewish students to different treatment, harassment, violence or a hostile environment. In some cases, campus anti-Semitism is related to anti-Israel sentiment. In other cases, it is not. For most purposes, we define anti-Semitism according to the EUMC Working Definition of Anti-Semitism, as endorsed by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and U.S. Department of State.
