YAF Files Civil Rights Complaints Against Universities That Have Made Illegal Agreements With Terrorist Supporters

By

Young America’s Foundation is working in collaboration with the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty to challenge illegal agreements made between pro-Hamas radicals and administrators at Northwestern University and Rutgers University, with additional cases on the horizon. 

In blatant violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, these universities are promising full-ride scholarships, faculty fellowships, and administrative hires based on race, ethnicity, national origin, and religion.

At Northwestern University, the school has promised to hire two Palestinian faculty members for two years, and will also provide the full cost of attendance for five Palestinian undergraduates. It will also provide “immediate temporary space for [Middle Eastern, North African,] and Muslim students.”

At Rutgers University, administrators have agreed to “hire senior administrators with cultural competency and knowledge about Arabs, Palestinians, Muslims, anti-Palestinian racism, and Islamophobia.” The institution has also promised to develop leftist training sessions for its administrators and staff.

WILL Deputy Counsel, Dan Lennington, stated, “Many academic institutions are choosing to appease pro-Hamas campus protesters by making illegal promises of scholarships and space for student organizations. But providing a benefit based on a student’s race or national origin is illegal. This is our second complaint challenging this illegal appeasement strategy and we are not done. We will continue to oppose universities that flout federal law and shirk their duty to provide a race-neutral education environment free of harassment and discrimination.”

Rutgers Business School student Jeremy Li, stated, “What Rutgers University has done defies the law and common sense. Like many students believe, hard work and merit should be driving values here at our school. I am proud to stand with YAF on campus and join students across the country who have said enough is enough.”

Instead of cowering to the demands of Hamas-supporting students, these universities must uphold law and order by clearing the encampments and prosecuting all violators to the fullest extent of the law.

It’s never a good idea to negotiate with terrorists, nor their supporters.
