In light of the alarming increase in antisemitic incidents on U.S. campuses following a Hamas attack, two New Jersey schools have imposed new requirements for colleges wanting to recruit their students. To ensure the safety of their pupils, these institutions demand colleges to submit a detailed plan to combat antisemitism on campus. This development has come during the pivotal time of college application finalization, influencing the choices of many students. The U.S. Education Department has also responded, giving a two-week deadline for universities to formulate an action plan against this surge in campus antisemitism. Now’s the time to act and ensure the safety of all students, regardless of their religious or ethnic background.
Do you believe that universities should be obligated to provide detailed safety plans against antisemitism for prospective students?
