In addition to the legal action, officials are also continuing discussions with the student protesters.

TAG: Demonstrators and university administrators held a meeting yesterday afternoon, during which protesters presented a counter-offer calling on the school to disclose public investments in companies profiting from Israel’s offensive in Gaza. They’re also asking the school to establish and let them be part of a joint working group examining private investments, and to cut ties with two specific Israeli academic institutions.
