  “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.
