"A new divestment proposal, targeting companies that reinforce Israel's foothold in Palestinian territories, has begun making its way through the
lengthy review process.
The proposal calls for the university to withdraw endowment funds from all companies "contractually involved in, and directly profiting from, the occupation of Palestine." Palestine is defined as land that includes the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem. The companies in question would be those that supply products or services to the Israeli military or to Israeli settlements in the territories."
