WBUR- UC's Napolitano Speaks Out On High Cost Of Public Ed, Anti-Semitism On Campus

The issue of whether the University of California should adopt the State Department’s definition of anti-Semitism will be voted on by the Board of Regents in July.

“I have my own personal view, and my personal view is that we should” adopt the State Department’s definition, Napolitano said.

In a letter sent Monday to Napolitano and the UC regents, 57 rabbis wrote that campus leaders should “be trained in using the State Department definition to identify anti-Semitic behavior and to address it with the same promptness and vigor as they do other forms of racial, ethnic and gender bigotry and discrimination.”
