In the aftermath of October 7th, antisemitism on college campuses is in the news and on many peoples’ minds. What does antisemitism look like on local campuses? What is the lived experience? How can we as a community support our students?

Join representatives from American University, Georgetown University, and George Washington University for a conversation about how these issues show up at their schools.

Panelists include Jason Benkendorf, Executive Director at American University Hillel, Colette Coleman, Dean of Students at George Washington University, Gershon Stein, Georgetown University Student and Colin Powell Leadership Program Intern at the U.S. Department of State Office of Israeli and Palestinian Affairs. Moderated by Adam Lehman, President and CEO at Hillel International.
