16. City University of New York, Brooklyn College

Brooklyn, New York

The campuses of the City University of New York system have been the site of frequent anti-Zionist and antisemitic incidents, the most blatant of which took place at Brooklyn College -- among the schools listed as "hotspots" of antisemitism in a report conducted by Brandeis University and released in October. The school has an active chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine, and the classroom often plays host to a political battleground between the campus's many Jewish students and their anti-Israel peers and professors. Jewish teachers have also been targeted. In one instance, a student in a group that crashed a Faculty Council meeting allegedly yelled "Zionist Jew" at a professor wearing a kippah. Though the college and the general CUNY system responded to widespread criticism by engaging in investigations of campus antisemitism, Jewish groups were disappointed with the results and say no meaningful change is on the horizon..
