Over 500 UC Alumni Send Letter to Napolitano

Hat tip Algemeiner


Following up on similar letters sent today to University of California President Janet Napolitano from over 50 Jewish rabbis and over 100 faculty members, a  letter was sent to Napolitano today by over 500 UC alumni asking her and the UC chancellors to fight anti-Semitism on their campuses.

For years now, the University of California, its chancellors and presidents, past and present have received letter after letter complaining about anti-Semitism. The California Legislature has weighed in. The previous president, Mark Yudoff, ignored their recommendations just as he ignored recommendations of a commission he appointed to study the problem.

The University is being asked to adopt the State Department's definition of anti-Semitism and treat it with the same degree of urgency as they do expressions of hate against other groups.

These letters should show that there is widespread concern over this problem.
