By Robyn Alana Engel

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1995

This study of the prevalence, nature, and implications of anti-Semitism at the University of California at Berkeley concludes that it does exist on a campus known for its intellectual and liberal values. Seventy percent of the study sample experienced or otherwise perceived negative experiences at UC Berkeley associated with Judaism. The most widely recognized manifestation of anti-Semitism was stereotypical comments made by fellow students, though there were several incidents involving faculty members.
