The Coordination Forum for Countering Antisemitism
December 20, 2011

Alone on the quad: understanding Jewish student isolation on campus, by Aryeh Weinberg, presents selected findings from a larger study of college student experiences with religious intolerance on campus. Conducted by the Institute for Jewish & Community Research, the Study of Religious Tolerance on Campus surveyed over 1,400 students nationally, including oversamples of minority religious groups. It is one of the largest and most comprehensive surveys of its kind.

The following is the first in a series of summaries, which provide concise analysis of selected student survey data. The complete study will be made available in publications in 2012.
