Best Practices  
Rutgers University

I am pleased to accept the resolution approved by the University Senate at its April 23, 2004 meeting, disassociating the Senate from the anti-Semitic message of the April 21 edition of The Medium.

I concur with the sentiment of this resolution and, as I stated in my remarks that day, I ask the University Senate’s help in seeking possible remedies to the ongoing problem of deeply offensive material appearing in The Medium. It is also important to note for the record that the students on the Medium staff subsequently issued an apology for the anti-Semitic cartoon – an apology that is, I hope, a sign of progress toward more responsible editorial judgment and exercise of First Amendment rights.

Sincerely yours,

Richard L. McCormick

and Reports
Over 50% of Jewish American college students report that they experienced or witnessed anti-Semitism on their campuses during the 2013-2014 academic year. 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 U.S. Department of State definition of anti-Semitism. .
