Jewish human rights group criticizes UM over handling of anti-Semitism

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A Jewish human rights group alleges the University of Missouri is “missing in action” when it comes to addressing anti-Semitism on campus.

Simon Wiesenthal Center officials made the complaint in a letter to the university system’s interim president Mike Middleton.

The group says a review of some 7,400 pages of university correspondence sent last fall during a time of racial unrest on the Columbia campus suggests the university downplayed allegations and incidents of anti-Semitism. That’s while the university vocally responded to incidents targeting minority students.

Race-related protests on the Columbia campus prompted the chancellor and system president to resign.

Middleton says he can assure those behind the letter that the university takes anti-Semitism “extremely seriously” and is “absolutely committed to learning environments that are free of hatred and intolerance.”
