Campuses with Chapters of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) or Similar Anti-Zionist Group – Both Active & Inactive Status

Updated: 10/31/17

SJP and other anti-Zionist student groups are a major source of antisemitic rhetoric and behavior at many schools. Reports analyzing antisemitic incidents in 2015 and 2016 indicate a significant increase in actions which directly harm or threaten Jewish students, including physical and verbal assaults, destruction of property, harassment discrimination and suppression of speech, at schools with an SJP or similar anti-Zionist chapter. Criticism of Israel can and should be part of healthy discussion and debate on any university campus. Unfortunately, criticism too often crosses the line into blatant anti-Semitism and targets all Jewish students, regardless of their feelings on Israel.

Below is a list of U.S. schools with either an active or inactive SJP or other anti-Zionist group. Regarding Students for Justice in Palestine, according to SJP National, there were 163 active SJP chapters as of November 28, 2016 and 189+ active SJP chapters as of March 29, 2017.

Additional student groups are noted where applicable. Red text indicates there is at least one active anti-Zionist group present.
Key note: Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS); Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP); and Students for Peace and Justice in Palestine (SPJP)
