A pro-Israel group at the University of Pennsylvania, the Think Peace Coalition, expressed concern over a campaign called “Penn Divest from Displacement,” a divestment movement at the Penn campus, The Daily Pennsylvanian reported on Monday.
The movement proposes that Penn divest from seven companies that are involved in“human rights abuses related to the displacement of peoples.”
The seven identified companies are part of the private prison, drone manufacturing and bulldozer weaponization industries.
For example, the group alleged in a March 30 editorial in The Daily Pennsylvanian that General Atomics Aeronautical Systems had produced "drones that terrorize Muslim communities in South Asia and the Middle East."
The groups that announced the movement were thePenn Arab Student Society, Penn for Immigrant Rights, Penn Students for Justice in Palestine, Students Organizing for Unity and Liberation, Penn Amnesty International, Penn Non-Cisand theStudent Labor Action Project.
Princeton University undergraduate students will soon vote on a referendum todivest from companies that are “complicit in the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and blockade of the Gaza Strip.”
Rutgers University has banned all fraternity and sorority houses from throwing parties for the rest of the semester, NJ Advance Media reported on Monday.
The Rutgers administration cited the unusually high number of alcohol-related incidents occurring at the houses this semester as its reasoning for the ban.
There are 86 fraternities and sororities at Rutgers.
The organizations, however, will be permitted to host their year-end formals at off-campus locations, but other spring events must be cancelled immediately.
Rutgers student Caitlyn Kovacs died in September of alcohol poisoning after attending a party at a fraternity, and five other unknown Rutgers fraternities are under investigation for alcohol-related incidents.
The ban follows a meeting between Rutgers officials and the leaders of all 86 Panhellenic societies over the weekend, in which negative publicity surrounding Greek life at Rutgers and around the country was discussed.
Erin Kearns, president of the Rutgers Panhellenic Association, told NJ Advance Media that the Greek leaders appeared to accept the ban.

Stanford University will now offer free tuition to students who come from families with less than $125,000 in annual income and assets, CNN reported.
Stanford made this announcement when it released its regular admissions results last week.
Room and board charges will also be waived for those students whose families’ incomes are below $65,000, which is more generous than the school’s previous threshold of $60,000.
While the expected parent contribution is zero, Stanford still requires students to contribute $5,000 on their own from summer or part-time jobs.
“Our highest priority is that Stanford remain affordable and accessible to the most talented students, regardless of their financial circumstance,” Stanford’s Provost John Etchemendy said, according to CNN.
In comparison, Princeton grants free tuition for students whose parents earn less than $140,000, while those with incomes lower than $60,000 do not have to pay tuition, room or board.
Correction: Due to a reporting error, an earlier version of this article misstated the point at which Princeton grants students free tuition.

Kimberly Theidon, a former Harvard associate anthropology professor, filed a lawsuit in federal court against Harvard in response to tenure denial.
Theidon alleges that she was denied tenure in May 2013 because of her gender and because she opposed what she viewed as a “sexually hostile environment” for women who complained about sexual assault and harassment at Harvard.
Theidon had expressed support for a student campaign to reevaluatehow Harvard responds to sexual assault complaints on campus.
She claims that she was held to a higher standard than male peers and received “less pay and work space than those accorded to males who had less experience or productivity.”
Prior to filing the initial charge, Theidon had appealed Harvard’s decision to deny her tenure.
Theidon joined Harvard’s faculty in 2004 and remained employed by the university until June 2014, when her contract expired and her formal relationship with the University ended.
