Dr. Tobin was the president of the Institute for Jewish & Community Research in San Francisco. For 14 years, he was the Director of the Maurice and Marilyn Cohen Center for Modern Jewish Studies at Brandeis University.
Among his many publications is The Uncivil University: Politics and Propaganda in American Education, in which Dr. Tobin reported on the results of his comprehensive research on anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism in American education. Dr. Tobin found that anti-Semitism exists at both public and private universities in all regions of the country, at both Ivy League schools and community colleges. He called for educating the campus community about anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism, and urged colleges and universities to address the problem by speaking out against anti-Semitic bigotry, reviewing academic departments to ensure that they are upholding honest scholarship and teaching, and protecting Jewish and pro-Israel students from harassment and intimidation.
