Marquette University withdraws sponsorship of anti-Israel event – sort of

Last week was “Israeli Apartheid Week” on the campus of Marquette University.

Officially hosted by Students for Justice in Palestine and the Marquette University Student Government, school administrators are distancing themselves from the event, despite acknowledging the school funded travel and other expenses for a radical anti-Israel cleric.

The backpedal follows a late-February email to Marquette University political science faculty and staff. 

In the email, first reported on the Milwaukee-based blog Marquette Warrior, John Janulis, coordinator for Intercultural Engagement in the school’s Office of Student Development, announced "a series of programs focusing on Israeli apartheid and Palestinian awareness."

Vice President for Student Affairs Chris Miller told MW school officials did not support the event. “It is purely student sponsored,” Miller said.
