Alums for Campus Fairness’ Tufts Chapter (ACF-Tufts) applauds Tufts University (Tufts) and President Anthony Monaco for issuing a statement condemning a recent antisemitic incident. During a recent competition, some members of a club sports team verbally directed antisemitism toward the opponent.

Susan Price, ACF-Tufts Chapter Leader said, “While we await further details about the incident, we appreciate President Monaco’s swift rebuke of the antisemitic behavior. It is heartening to see the administration acknowledge that there is a serious issue on college campuses and that they are actively working to combat Jew hatred at Tufts.”

We appreciate President Monaco's thorough investigation and decisive action in support of Jewish students. Suspending all team activities until the investigation completes is an important step in combating antisemitism.

As the unified alumni voice against antisemitism, we are confident that Tufts will work diligently to combat antisemitism on campus.
