Feds Open Anti-Semitism Investigation at UC-Santa Cruz
Complaint Alleges Pervasive Hostile Environment

San Francisco, March 15, 2011 – The Institute for Jewish & Community Research IJCR announces that the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights OCR has opened a major investigation into anti-Semitism claims at the University of California Santa Cruz. Lecturer Tammi Rossman-Benjamin filed a June 2009 complaint alleging the university failed to address a hostile environment for Jewish students on that campus.

After long deliberation, OCR has determined that the case merits full investigation.The OCR complaint describes a campus environment in which Jewish students feel harassed and intimidated. University-sponsored events vilify Israel while professors openly express hostility toward the Jewish state and its supporters. Rossman-Benjamin adds that “no other … group on campus has been subjected … to such hostile and demonizing criticism.”
