Hebrew University is to give two academic credits to students who volunteer for the right-wing group Im Tirtzu, although the university regulations state that such credits are not to be given for work with political groups.

In 2019, Im Tirtzu started a website that posted the names and contact information of dozens of lecturers who had expressed left-wing opinions. Since 2017, the movement has also operated a phone line to take reports about lecturers.
