University Antisemitism Investigation

FILE - A bicyclist is seen on the campus of the University of Vermont in Burlington, Vt., Wednesday, March 11, 2020. The U.S. Department of Education is investigating allegations of antisemitism at the University of Vermont, including that some Jewish students were excluded from campus clubs and a teaching assistant threatened to reduce the grades of students who support the state of Israel.

The president of the University of Vermont issued a blistering denial Thursday of allegations the university failed to adequately respond to complaints of anti-Jewish behavior on the Burlington campus.

In a message to the university community, President Suresh Garimella said the complaints being investigated by the Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights have “painted our community in a patently false light.”
