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.

Take Action

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. Schools can also take clear, decisive action now to ensure that graduation ceremonies, events, and functions run smoothly, and that all students and their families feel safe, welcomed and celebrated.

Tell the Department of Education to Protect Jewish Students

Jewish students have been physically assaulted on campus, prevented from entering campus buildings, told to "go back to Poland" and have faced repeated verbal abuse. Join ADL in urging the Department of Education to designate a senior official to oversee efforts to counter antisemitic discrimination in higher education, as called for by the Countering Antisemitism Act.
