Anti-Zionist Campus Groups

Search anti-Zionist campus groups on U.S. college and university campuses.

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, 2016, 2017 and 2018 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 antisemitism 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.

In 2023, new faculty groups emerged in response to a call put out by the US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (USACBI). Numerous faculty groups have been founded as a result and are added to this database of anti-Zionist campus groups.

Key note: Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS); Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP); Students for Peace and Justice in Palestine (SPJP); Faculty for Justice in Palestine (FJP).

Criteria for active chapters:  Registered or unregistered groups that have held at least one campus event during the year and/or are active on social channels and/or are listed as active by the University itself.
