Report into NUS shows ‘a litany of failures’

The Board of Deputies of British Jews has responded to an independent report which has described the National Union of Students as “a hostile environment for Jews”.

The statement reads: “This report into the NUS shows a litany of failures by the organisation with regards to Jewish students, who were treated with apathy at best and hostility at worst.

“As the report itself makes clear, this is far from the first time that an investigation into NUS attitudes towards Jewish members has been undertaken. The organisation’s key priority must now be to work closely with the Union of Jewish Students to ensure that this time they commit to implementing the report’s recommendations.”
