And they have, to some degree.
Reading through the divestment referendum that the undergraduates have already voted on and the graduate students are due to vote on in the course of this week, I was utterly shocked that Egypt was included in the referendum.

Following recent events, the rightful outrage from our community — including the recent student demonstration in the University Chapel — appropriately galvanizes us to confront racial injustice and shame those who spew hate.
That racism should be condemned could not be more true, and it is precisely what is true that we must always challenge ourselves to uphold.

It is always to be welcomed when students give written or spoken expression to their moral sentiments on issues outside the University’s comfortable cocoon and debate these sentiments in a manner that befits a great university.
At the same time, it is less heartening when these expressions lead to facile and morally empty policy recommendations for the operation of the University at large.
From the viewpoint of an economist, for example, having the University’s investment arm, PRINCO, rid itself of the stock certificates on a set of companies whose role in Israel and the West Bank is deplored by the advocates of disinvestment strikes me as such an empty gesture.
