Statement regarding anti-Semitism
November 16, 2020 10:02 AM

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

Students who choose the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for their college education make that decision with an expectation that they will find the freedom and security to grow, to explore and to express their whole and best selves.

But, sadly, that is not the experience of all members of the student community. Anti-Semitic acts and expressions are all too common in our country and in our world, and examples of that intolerance have occurred at this university as well. This is unacceptable. While the university has taken measures in the past to address this problem, the university must do more.

Today, in collaboration with leaders in the Jewish community, we released a joint statement reaffirming our shared and common goal of creating a safe and welcoming environment for Jewish students and some actions that we will be taking towards that goal.
