President's Message | Reports & Announcements



December 26, 2013

American University joins other universities and colleges opposing the American Studies Association (ASA) resolution to boycott Israeli academic institutions. Fundamentally, this is an action that contradicts academic freedom, one of American University's core principles. A boycott of academic institutions and scholars of any nation, in response to their government's policies, limits the free exchange of ideas among scholars, and is inherently not in keeping with our values.
