Queens College Faces Islamophobic Accusations Amidst Investigation of Muslim Student Association

QUEENS COLLEGE–After opening an investigation into a Muslim student club, Queens College’s president, Frank Wu, has faced backlash from the student body, being labeled as Islamophobic.

This culminated at the “Condemn Frank Wu’s Hypocrisy” protest yesterday that saw over 50 students and faculty attend. Among “Free Palestine” chants, the crowd heavily criticized President Wu for opening an investigation — in accordance with the NYPD — into the Muslim Student Association (MSA).

“It’s a tactic we’re seeing a lot these days from supporters of Israel’s genocide like President Wu,” said Jane Guskin, an urban studies professor at Queens College and member of the CUNY for Palestine organization.
