Jewish Complaints Prompt University to Set Up Diversity Website

By: JTA

Florida Atlantic University has launched a website promoting diversity following complaints from Jewish groups about activities on campus by a pro-Palestinian group.

The website features a video on which faculty and students describe the Boca Raton school as diverse and open to students of all faiths. The video was created after meetings between the university leadership and the Florida chapter of the Anti-Defamation League.

Students for Justice in Palestine last year sent 200 students eviction notices bearing the university’s official stamp as a means of calling attention to what it said are Israel’s policies toward Palestinians. A number of Jewish students among the 200 said they felt threatened by the notices and violated university policy.

The video on the new website launches with positive impressions from Jews, including a professor of Judaic studies, the president of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County and a Jewish student.

An African-American said she sought information about other minorities on campus, and named the campus Hillel House as one to which she turned.
