Robert A. Corrigan
President, San Francisco State University
Early in Robert Corrigan’s tenure as president of San Francisco State University, students posted a mural on campus that included antisemitic symbols. Corrigan took a strong stand against the hateful imagery, and had the mural sandblasted off. As a result of that turmoil—and the persistence of antisemitism on university campuses—Corrigan decided that San Francisco State should have a concrete plan for addressing such incidents when they occur.
