UW rejects ASA Israel boycott…and a new cartoon!


Seattle – Michael K. Young,  President of Washington State’s flagship university announced today the University of Washington’s rejection of   calls for a “boycott by American higher education institutions of universities and their faculties in Israel”. With this statement the UW joins over 190 American institutions of higher learning in condemning efforts to isolate the Jewish state. President Young declared in a statement released by his office today that “any such boycott of academic institutions directly violates academic freedom, which is a fundamental principle of AAU universities and of American higher education in general”.
