  • Education about antisemitism as part of DEI training on campus, including orientations for students, faculty, staff, and administrators and training for residential advisors. The Serling Institute faculty are happy to help with this.
  • Workshops on antisemitism for interested colleges, departments, programs, student groups, residential halls, etc., To arrange this, please contact the director of the Serling Institute for Jewish Studies and Modern Israel—currently Professor Yael Aronoff (aronoffy@msu.edu).
  • A more robust religious policy that would better address the issues of inclusion, as recommended by the DEI Steering Committee.
  • Broad participation in MSU Dialogues on Religion and Ethnicity, which focuses on antisemitism and Islamophobia. https://inclusion.msu.edu/education/intercultural-dialogue1.html
  • University-wide reports on antisemitic incidents will increase awareness and educate the campus.
  • Programming by the Serling Institute, including regular lectures, films, exhibits, and performances exploring the diversity of the histories, cultures, languages, identities, and religion of the Jewish people, including programming specifically on the topic of antisemitism. Please see our website https://jsp.msu.edu/ for upcoming events and email us to subscribe to our listserv for updates of events and/or newsletters at jewishst@msu,edu. We encourage students to reflect on several events in coordination with the director aronoffy@msu.edu so that they can include these in My Spartan Story https://mystory.msu.edu/
