Counter Antisemitism: We All Must Act
Since October 7th, ADL has tracked a surge in antisemitic incidents on college and university campuses. In addition, 73% of Jewish college students surveyed have experienced or witnessed some form of antisemitism since the beginning of the 2023-2024 school year alone. A plurality of Jewish college students reported that they do not feel physically safe on campus after October 7th, and even fewer feel emotionally safe.
Together with ADL, we can demand change. Not On My Campus provides an actionable path toward No Tolerance, and empowers students, parents, alumni and other stakeholders to come together to call for change. We can’t do this alone.
Pathway to No Tolerance
Committing to No Tolerance for Antisemitism requires clear, concerted action. There are several core action steps universities can and should take to demonstrate the commitment to No Tolerance and make their campuses safer. These include six tangible actions universities can take now as well as ensuring that student codes of conduct are enforced when conduct crosses the line. For universities who believe their codes of conduct do not sufficiently address such conduct, ADL has sample language that can be used to strengthen those codes.
The Six Key Commitments
Help push your college to implement these key commitments to address the hostile environments that are increasingly taking hold on campuses across the country.
Student Codes of Conduct
Ensure that codes of conduct are upheld and evenly enforced, and fill any gaps that may exist to provide comprehensive protections for students on your campus.
