More US Universities Withdraw from ASA over Boycott

By:

Two more American institutions of higher learning officially withdrew their memberships from the American Studies Association after its membership voted in favor of an academic boycott of Israel.

Kenyon College and Indiana University on Monday joined Brandeis University and Penn State Harrisburg in canceling their memberships in the association. Dozens of other universities also have condemned the ASA boycott, including Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Brown, Cornell, the University of Chicago, Northwestern University, the University of Maryland and New York University.

The executive committee of the Association of American Universities, composed of 60 public and private U.S. colleges and universities and two Canadian universities, issued a statement Dec. 20 opposing a boycott of Israeli academic institutions.

Earlier this year, the Association for Asian American Studies announced it would mount an academic boycott of Israel. On Dec. 15, the Native American Studies Association urged its members to boycott Israeli educational institutions. The Modern Language Association next month will debate an academic boycott of Israel.

    Nicd to know some schools have their heads on straight!

  2. alumni should withhold contributions until they all withdraw

  3. SOME STUDENTS ARE EASILY PERSUASED AGAINST ISRAEL TO GAIN ACCEPTANCE BUT THERE STUPID AND DONT HAVE A MIND OF THERE OWN. PERHAPS THEY NEED TO GO LIVE IN GAZA OR SYRIA THEN THEY WOULD APPRECIATE AND NOT OPPOSE ISRAELI COLLEGES !

  4. I wonder why Wayne State University and San Francisco State University have not condemned the boycotts advocated by ASA.
