During its January meeting, the Board of Regents (BOR) for the University System of Georgia (USG) announced strong opposition to a boycott against Israeli scholars and academic institutions.

The boycott is being led by the American Studies Association and two other organizations. However, organizations including the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) and the Association of American Universities (AAU) have announced their opposition.

As part of the USG, as well as AAU and the Association of Public Land Grant Universities, Georgia Tech fully supports the statements issued by the BOR and these professional organizations.  

According to the BOR, “The call for this boycott directly violates academic freedom, which is the fundamental principle of American higher education essential to the research, teaching, and public service activities of our institutions.”
