Campuses with Chapters of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) – Active & Inactive

Updated: 11/1/16

In 2015, more than 300 incidents of anti-Semitism occurred at 109 schools in 28 states. SJP and other anti-Zionist student groups are a major source of antisemitic rhetoric and behavior at many schools. (See our recently unveiled Antisemitism Tracker for examples of antisemitic acts perpetrated by SJP members on dozens of campuses). In fact, an analysis of 2015 indicates a significant increase in actions which directly harm or threaten Jewish students, including physical and verbal assaults, destruction of property, harassment discrimination and suppression of speech, at schools with an SJP chapter. Criticism of Israel can and should be part of healthy discussion and debate on any university campus. Unfortunately, criticism too often crosses the line into blatant anti-Semitism and targets all Jewish students, regardless of their feelings on Israel.

Below is a list of U.S. schools with an active or inactive SJP chapter.
Additional student groups are noted where applicable.
Key note: Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS); Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP); and Students for Peace and Justice in Palestine (SPJP)
