Dec 7, 2013 — Here is good news. The President of the University of Pennsylvania has reaffirmed its stance against academic boycott in light of the ASA resolution: http://www.thedp.com/article/2013/12/asa-israel-boycott-academic-institutions-penn#.UqIz4en-TSs.facebook. Previously, many university presidents, including those of Columbia and Harvard, and the Palestinian president of Al-Quds University, have opposed the boycott. http://www.haaretz.com/news/palestinian-university-president-comes-out-against-boycott-of-israeli-academics-1.190585

A call to boycott Israeli academic institutions gained traction in the American academic community this week, but Penn and the Association of American Universities continue to stand adamantly against a potential boycott. The National Council of the American Studies Association announced on Wednesday that it has unanimously endorsed a resolution calling for a boycott of Israeli academic institutions.
