The incidents below have been compiled from media accounts, student testimonies and eyewitness reports, and organized into the following categories:

  1. Targeting Jewish Students and Staff – Incidents that directly target Jewish students or other Jewish
    members of the campus community for harmful or hateful action.
  2. Antisemitic Expression – Language, imagery or behavior deemed antisemitic by the U.S. State Department definition
    of antisemitism, or wholly consistent with that definition.
  3. BDS Activity (for more information about BDS and antisemitism, click HERE)– Petitions, statements, meetings, events and rallies in which the anti-Semitic boycott, divestment, sanctions movement is promoted, supported, discussed, or voted on.

Each incident has been further classified according to its specific antisemitic content using criteria derived from the U.S. State Department definition of antisemitism. For more information on the subcategories of classification, click HERE.
