Feds investigate USC student’s complaint of anti-Semitism

LOS ANGELES – The U.S. Department of Education will investigate the University of Southern California after a Jewish student said she resigned from the student government because she was harassed for her pro-Israel views.

The investigation by the department’s Office for Civil Rights stems from a complaint by the nonprofit Louis D. Brandeis Center that alleged the Los Angeles university “allowed a hostile environment of anti-Semitism to proliferate on its campus,” the center said in a statement tuesday

The complaint was filed on behalf of Rose Ritch, who resigned as student body vice president in August 2020. Ritch said she resigned following a campaign to oust her for her alleged lack of commitment to racial justice amid national outcry over the killing of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement.
