Kudos To…

thumbs-up

  • KUDOS to University of Minnesota President Kaler for his strong statement and recognition that, “the inclusion on the ballot of a non-binding referendum that names Israel is exacerbating tension and fueling discrimination toward Jewish students. My statement of two years ago is as relevant today as it was then: ‘Our University strongly and unequivocally condemns prejudice and hostility toward Jews, as we condemn bias against any groups.’”

bullet img May 14, 2018 – DEPAUL UNIVERSITY
An open letter in the campus paper called on the board of Trustees to open up its investment portfolio in connection with a past BDS vote. The open letter stated, ” In 2014, the DePaul University administration was petitioned by pro-Palestine students to divest from pro-Israel investments, amidst opposition from pro-Israel lobbyists on campus. Even though the vote was successful in pulling funds from these causes, the board of trustees still maintains the confidentiality of their investment portfolio. Though this is within the university’s legal rights, a university that claims to be morally driven should – on principle – make their morally consequential behavior public to be held accountable for said behavior.”
