The divestment referendum did not pass, with 52.5 percent of students voting against divestment and 47.5 percent voting in favor of it.
The referendum called on theUniversity to divest from companies“that maintain the infrastructure of the Israelioccupation of the West Bank, facilitate Israel’s and Egypt’s collective punishment of Palestinian civilians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, or facilitate state repression against Palestinians by Israeli, Egyptian, and Palestinian Authority security force.”
Though 2,200 students participated in the election and voting process, only 2,032 students voted on the referendum.
Princeton Committee on Palestine board member Katie Horvath ’15 explained that, although the movement for divestment had been significant, she was not surprised at the outcome of the referendum.
“We knew from the outset that this was going to be an uphill battle, and we had done our research and looked at the previous divestment movements at Princeton,” Horvath said.
She added that she was pleased to have lost by only 102 votes, because with more outreach and slightly increased support, the referendum would pass in a similar scenario.

Dartmouth alumni released an open letter on April 2 demanding that Dartmouth president Phil Hanlon, the Board of Trustees and the Advisory Committee on Investment Responsibility divest from fossil fuels, The Dartmouth reported.

Divest Dartmouth, a student-run organization, joined divestment groups from 16 other colleges to create theMulti-School Fossil Free Divestment Fund in December.
The new fund calls for the involved Universities to immediately cease new investments — and divest from current holdings — in the fossil fuel companies within the next five years.
Students at the University of Pennsylvania protested the closing of the school’s Africa Center in front of prospective undergraduates, The Daily Pennsylvanian reported on Monday.
The students also protested the merger of the school’s African studies department and Center for Africana Studies.
The protest was led by students majoring in African studies, as well as members of the Penn African Students Association and of Students Organizing for Unity and Liberation.
Students said the merger doesn’t make sense because Africana studies concerns itself with the African diaspora, while African studies focus on the African continent.
Penn, in an email to students, said the changes were precipitated by a number of eliminations in federal funding.
Some students, however, questioned the school’s motives, since the Africa Center employed only three staff members and Penn is in the process of opening a new center in Beijing.

New documents suggest that Harvard was dealing with suspicious primate deaths before 2010, The Boston Globereported.
Harvard had previously reported four monkey deaths from 2010-12 at its New England Primate Research Center, which was supported by taxpayer funds.
However, a detailed spreadsheet released by the former head of the center, Frederick Wang, contained the medical histories of 14 monkeys from 1999-2011 and suggested that the center harbored suspicious primate deaths long before 2010.
Wang told the Globe that his experience and review of the data suggests that the deaths were primarily a consequence of human error and inadequate animal care, which caused the monkey’s deaths primarily by deprivation of water.
In 2013, the Primate Research Center announced that it would close.
