The US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (USACBI) calls on all US faculty, administrators, students and staff to uphold the academic boycott of Israel by refusing participation in Study Abroad programs in Israel.

To enroll, or participate in any way, in a Study Abroad program at an Israeli institution means ignoring if not perpetuating the ongoing violation of the academic--and, indeed, human--freedoms of Palestinians.
