The Elder of Ziyon has just posted a list of the US universities that have publicly rejected the American Studies Association [ASA] call for a boycott of Israeli academics. I am dismayed that my three alma maters are not on the list:
- Carleton College, Northfield, Minnesota
- Chicago Theological Seminary
- Iowa State University
I am dismayed in part because I can readily imagine that too many students and faculty members at these institutions support the boycott. I hope they, too, will go on record opposing the boycott.
Here is the list:
Columbia now joins dozens of other universities who have denounced the ASA boycott.
The latest list from Avi Mayer:
The following is a list of institutions whose presidents or chancellors have publicly rejected the academic boycott of Israel in recent days. The Executive Committee of the Association of American Universities, which represents 62 top institutions in the U.S. and Canada, has also expressed its strong opposition to the boycott, as has the American Association of University Professors, which counts more than 48,000 members.
