Antisemitism in Universities

Luminate Education Group (formerly Leeds City College)

International Definition of Antisemitism


The College has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism in full, including all of its examples.

The Definition was adopted on 14th December 2020.

As part of its response, the College provided minutes of a meeting of its Board of Governors on 14th December 2020, which show that the Definition was adopted. Additionally, the College published a statement on its website on an unknown date in 2021.

Students’ Union

When asked on 3rd August 2020, Leeds City College Students’ Union failed to confirm whether it has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism.


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.
