INFORMATION FOR PARENTS
On this page we are planning to provide various resources for the parents of former, current and prospective students.
For the Parents of the Prospective Students
Are you a parent whose child is considering attending Columbia University or Barnard College?
Are you concerned about anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism on campus?
Do you want to know more?
If so, we recommend the Questionnaire for Prospective Students and Their Families Interviewing Colleges/Universities Regarding the Level of Anti-Semitic Activity on Campus created by AMCHA Initiative. Asking questions is an excellent first step. It will put school administration on notice that anti-Semitism and hostile anti-Israel environment on campus will not go unnoticed.
However, asking generic questions is not enough. After all, what school representative wants to admit that there is a problem on campus? You should know the history of anti-Jewish incidents on the specific campus so that you can ask what the administration has done in specific instances in the past and how they expect to handle similar events in the future.
Check out our list of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel events and incidents on campus.
Check out our list of how media covered various anti-Semitic and anti-Israel events at Columbia and Barnard.
