Antisemitism in Admissions in Higher Education

Hosted By: Valley Beit Midrash

The place of American Jews in higher education is a complicated story. It is at once a story that is central to American Jewish class mobility, yet it is also undercut by evidence of antisemitism at some of the United States’ most revered institutions. The story of antisemitic exclusion at many of the Ivy League schools in the early decades of the 20th century has been well-documented. What is less known is the story of other schools which also engaged in exclusionary practices in the decades following World War II. In this presentation, Professor Kelman will examine one such instance of systematic exclusion in admissions. It is a story of administration, admissions, and antisemitism.
