Rutgers University Statement Rejecting Academic Boycott












As we approach our 250th anniversary, Rutgers celebrates a long tradition of global intellectual and cultural exchange, and it deeply values academic collaboration with scholars and institutions around the world.

While Rutgers affirms the right of faculty, students, and associations to express their own political and intellectual viewpoints, we believe that academic boycotts fundamentally violate the principles of academic freedom and the free exchange of knowledge and ideas.

Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, joins peer institutions -- including fellow members of the Association of American Universities (AAU) -- in rejecting the American Studies Association’s boycott of Israeli institutions of higher education.
