Hampshire Investigates Anti-Semitic Incident

March 26, 2018

Hampshire College is investigating what President Jonathan Lash called in a campus email "an act of blatant and deplorable anti-Semitism." The email did not detail the incident, but a spokesman said that it involved harassment of a student. The spokesman also said that the college has also had other incidents in recent years, including swastika graffiti. The college had planned, prior to last week's incident, a discussion of anti-Semitism, and that is scheduled for Tuesday.
