New York Gov. Kathy Hochul warned state colleges and universities that failing to address antisemitism on their campuses violates the state’s Human Rights Law and will lead to enforcement action.

She emphasized that calls for genocide on campuses violate the law and federal regulations, and failure to address such activities could result in the loss of state and federal funds.

Hochul’s warning came after college presidents, including those from Harvard, MIT, and the University of Pennsylvania, faced criticism for their responses to questions about antisemitic activities on their campuses.

Hochul said she was able to verify with State University of New York (SUNY) Chancellor John King that calling for the genocide of any group of people on any of its 62 campuses is a violation of the code of conduct.

“I assure you that if any school in New York State is found to be in violation, I will activate the State’s Division of Human Rights to take aggressive enforcement action and will refer possible Title Vi violations to the federal government,” promised Hochul.

“The moral lapses that were evidenced by the disgraceful answers to questions posed during this week’s congressional hearing cannot and will not be tolerated here in the state of New York,” she continued.
