9. New York University

New York City, New York

This downtown Manhattan school is rife with anti-Zionist activity. The school’s Students for Justice in Palestine chapter holds regular anti-Israel events, falsely accusing the Jewish state of practicing apartheid and calling for its destruction. University administrators are under constant pressure by BDS groups, such as SJP and the NYU Out of Occupied Palestine coalition, to divest from Israel. This prompted the school’s president to call BDS activity an “affront to academic freedom.” Though the school boasts a significant and close-knit Jewish community, NYU’s was one of the first graduate student governments to pass a BDS resolution, and Jewish students have been subject to antisemitic attacks, such as being served mock eviction notices. The head of NYU’s Hillel said students were shaken after a swastika with accompanying “white pride” messages was found in a dorm after the presidential election in November. (Photo credit: NYU Law.)
