The University of California's governing board is set to sign off Thursday on a statement condemning anti-Semitic behavior and a companion report urging campus leaders to confront "anti-Semitic forms of anti-Zionism."

A committee of the university's Board of Regents voted unanimously on Wednesday to send what is being called a "Statement of Principles Against Intolerance" and a report summarizing the context for it to the full board for consideration.

The documents were prepared at the urging of some Jewish groups that argued the 10-campus UC system needed to affirm its opposition to anti-Semitism amid growing student activism on behalf of Palestinian rights.
