Statement by President Amy Gutmann Opposing Boycott of Israeli Academics

A small leadership group of the new British University and Colleges Union has recommended a boycott of Israeli universities and scholars by British universities.  This proposed boycott represents a direct assault on a core principle of academic freedom. University scholars must be free to produce and disseminate knowledge and understanding, without threat of interference or penalty, regardless of the policies of their national governments. This freedom is a sine qua non of higher education's global--and globally recognized--mission.
