UC STAKEHOLDER PETITION: The University of California Must Adopt the U.S. State Department's Definition of Anti-Semitism

Page One

UPDATE: In a change of strategy, the UC Regents will now be discussing the adoption of a “statement of principles” against various forms of intolerance, including antisemitism, at their September meeting. However, before the Regents can properly condemn the antisemitic behavior that has created a hostile environment for many Jewish students, they will need to accurately understand it. It is therefore essential for the Regents to include in their statement of principles a reference to the full U.S. State Department definition, which recognizes activity that demonizes and delegitimizes Israel and denies its right to exist as antisemitism.

YES, the University of California should adopt the U.S. State Department’s definition of anti-Semitism to accurately identify and address anti-Semitic behavior on UC campuses.

As direct stakeholders of the University of California, we firmly urge the Board of Regents, who will be discussing this issue, to join three UC student governments and the California Senate in adopting the U.S. State Department’s definition of anti-Semitism.
