'No Evidence' of Anti-Semitism at Columbia
A committee investigating charges that scholars in the university's Middle Eastern studies program intimidated Jewish and Israeli students has found "no evidence of any statements made by the faculty that could reasonably be construed as anti-Semitic."
But the panel concluded that one professor "exceeded commonly accepted bounds" of classroom behavior by conveying that a student's question merited harsh public criticism, and found a more general lack of civility in the interactions of professors and students.
Columbia made the report available on its Web site early Thursday morning. It also posted responses from President Lee C. Bollinger, who ordered the investigation, Provost Alan Brinkley, and Nicholas Dirks, vice president for the arts and sciences.
Inside Higher Ed will have a full report on the Columbia investigation Friday morning.
