Antisemitism in Universities

University of Buckingham

International Definition of Antisemitism

University

The University does not appear to have adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism.

This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted an information request on 14th July 2020. The University of Buckingham  is a privately-owned university and so is not required to respond as it is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000. As of 14th December 2020 the University has not responded.

Students’ Union

When asked on 8th August 2020, University of Buckingham Students’ Union failed to confirm whether it has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism.

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.
