FSWC – Campus
The Campus Associates of the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center seek to empower and assist the campus community in countering hate and intolerance on university campuses across the country.
This web portal is designed to act as an essential resource for concerned students. Here you will find information about upcoming programs and campus initiatives, as well as begin to understand the current campus climate and learn how to react effectively to the challenges that lie ahead.
Within the last several years, hate and intimidation has reached an all time high on Canadian university campuses, creating an atmosphere in which many students feel uncomfortable or threatened.
Jewish students are demonized for supporting the Jewish state and calls for the dissolution of Israel are regularly transmitted on campus. The perpetrators of this new antisemitism often try to veil their intolerance by calling it “anti-Zionism”. While legitimate criticism of the Jewish state is fair and warranted, lies and double standards are not.
We hope that with the help of concerned individuals like you, we can turn the tide on the increasingly poisonous atmosphere regularly faced on our campuses.
