Antisemitism in Universities

Arden University

International Definition of Antisemitism

University

The University has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism in full, including all of its examples, but it has not provided evidence to support its claim.

The University said that the Definition was adopted on 27th October 2020.

The University has told Campaign Against Antisemitism that: “The Board of Governors adopted this in full at its October 2020 meeting (27th October 2020) in response to a letter from the Secretary of State dated 9th October 2020.Adoption covers the entire University”.

This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted an information request on 15th October 2021. On 19th October 2021, the University responded. Arden University is a privately-owned university and so is not required to respond as it is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Students’ Union

The University does not have a students’ union.

Incidents

No incidents have been reported to us, however we recognise that antisemitism is chronically underreported and it is possible that there are incidents that have not been reported. To report an incident, please contact us.

Jewish life on campus

The incidence of antisemitism on a university campus and how the university and its students’ union address antisemitism are matters of serious concern. At the same time, they do not represent the totality of Jewish life on any campus. For further information about Jewish life on campus, please contact the local Jewish Society or Jewish chaplain.

No student should have to endure antisemitism. Campaign Against Antisemitism provides specialist help to students who have experienced antisemitism, including free legal representation. For assistance with antisemitism on campus, please contact us.
