Survey finds high rates of anti-Semitism on college campuses

More than half of 1,157 Jewish students surveyed at 55 college campuses in the U.S. reported being subjected to or witnessing anti-Semitism at their schools, according to a new study conducted by Trinity College and the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law.

The report, titled The National Demographic Survey of American Jewish College Students, was conducted in the spring of 2014 by a research team from Trinity College in Connecticut. The rates of victimization ranged depending on the campus, major, religiosity and other factors.

The survey was conducted in March and April 2014.

In the South, 70 percent of Jewish college students surveyed reported anti-Semitism at public schools, while 48 percent reported incidents at private schools. Still, the overall rates showed only a slight variation according to region, the report said, suggesting anti-Semitism is a nationwide problem.

Barry Kosmin and Ariela Keysar, Trinity researchers who led the study, noted in a news release that Orthodox Jews historically have borne the brunt of anti-Semitism. But this does not seem the case on college campuses, they said.
