Statement on ASA boycott of Israel

On Jan. 2, President Nathan O. Hatch publicly spoke out against the American Studies Association’s academic boycott of Israel. His comments originally appeared on the Legal Insurrection blog, where Cornell law professor William Jacobson shared similar statements from dozens of presidents, provosts and professors from across the nation.

“Wake Forest University does not support an academic boycott of Israel or any similar measure that limits academic freedom,” Hatch said.
