ADL confronts antisemitism on college campuses

  • March 25, 2024


Since October 7th, ADL has tracked a surge in antisemitic incidents on college and university campuses. In addition, 73% of Jewish college students surveyed have experienced or witnessed some form of antisemitism since the beginning of the 2023-2024 school year alone. A plurality of Jewish college students reported that they do not feel physically safe on campus after October 7th, and even fewer feel emotionally safe.


Jewish students are increasingly feeling unsafe and unwelcome on their own college campuses. This is not acceptable. In response, ADL has launched several new initiatives including the Not On My Campus campaign. Not On My Campus provides an actionable path toward No Tolerance for Antisemitism, including by strengthening and enforcing codes of conduct to better guarantee access to a safe and equitable learning environment for all students.


Not On My Campus provides resources for students, parents, alumni and other stakeholders to come together to call for change. Go to:


New resources are regularly added, including a set of suggested questions students can ask about a university’s commitment to no tolerance for antisemitism and what it has done to further that commitment.


The ADL Mountain States Region has responded to incidents at colleges and universities across the region, including Colorado College, Colorado School of Mines, Colorado State University, Metropolitan State University of Denver, University of Colorado-Boulder, University of Colorado-Denver, University of Denver, and the University of New Mexico. Together, we can push back against antisemitism on campus. Join us and get involved at:
