No universities or colleges are known to have endorsed the boycott of Israeli academic institutions declared by the American Studies Association a week ago, thus far. Dozens have rejected it.

According to William A. Jacobson, a professor of law at Cornell Law School, the universities and colleges below are confirmed to reject the academic boycott of Israel passed by the American Studies Association.

This list is based on positions expressed by the presidents of the universities or other official spokespersons.

These are in addition to the Association of American Universities, the umbrella organization for 62 major universities and university-systems, and the Association of American University Professors, both of which reject the boycott. Brandeis and Penn State were the first to announce that they reject the boycott.
