Jewish Student Under Investigation at University of California
The University of California Student Association will hold a meeting to discuss allegations against a Jewish student nominated to serve as a regent for the statewide university system.
UCSA’s board agreed Saturday to hold an emergency meeting to look into the allegations against Avi Oved, a UCLA student and the student regent designate nominee for the larger University of California system.
Amal Ali, a former president of Students for Justice in Palestine at U.C. Riverside, had alleged at Saturday’s UCSA board meeting that Oved failed to disclose a UCLA student government campaign donation from a pro-Israel philanthropist, The Daily Californian, U.C. Berkeley’s student newspaper, reported.
Ali pointed to an April 2013 email purportedly sent by Oved to philanthropist Adam Milstein thanking him for what was described as a “generous donation.”
At the time, Oved was running for the position of internal vice president of UCLA’s student government on the Bruins United slate.
