    members of the campus community for harmful or hateful action.
  2. Antisemitic Expression – Language, imagery or behavior deemed antisemitic by the U.S. State Department definition
    of antisemitism, or wholly consistent with that definition.
  3. BDS Activity (for more information about BDS and antisemitism, click HERE)– Petitions, statements, meetings, events and rallies in which the anti-Semitic boycott, divestment, sanctions movement is promoted, supported, discussed, or voted on.

Academic Boycotters Map

Distribution of Faculty Endorsing the Academic Boycott of Israel

For updates and changes, please let us know – Contact Us


Data for this map corresponds with information on AMCHA’s Campus Monitor Pages. The map includes faculty members on U.S. campuses who have endorsed a publicly-accessible statement or petition in support of an academic boycott of Israel, and does not include faculty endorsements of anti-Israel divestment efforts.

The academic boycott of Israel, coordinated internationally by the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI), calls for academics and academic associations to “boycott and/or work towards the cancellation or annulment of events, activities, agreements, or projects involving Israeli academic institutions.” Faculty on U.S. college and university campuses who sign onto an anti-Israel academic boycott statement or petition are not only endorsing a campaign that targets Israeli universities for harm, but one that directly subverts the educational opportunities and academic freedom of students and faculty at their own American institutions. For example, faculty signatories to the academic boycott of Israel are urged to carry out the following actions on their own campuses, and many have done so:

  • Boycott their own university’s education abroad program in Israel, refuse to publicize the program among their students, and refuse to write letters of recommendation for students wishing to study in Israel;
  • Attempt to shut down collaborative research between scholars at their own university and in Israel;
  • Attempt to cancel or shut down events organized by students or faculty at their own university that feature Israeli leaders or Israeli scholars who come as representatives of their universities;
  • Boycott academic programs or projects organized by students or faculty at their own university that “bring together Palestinians/Arabs and Israelis so that they can present their respective narratives or perspectives, or to work toward reconciliation” or that promote “co-existence.”
