Columbia faculty stage protest in solidarity with pro-Palestinian demonstrators after arrests | US universities

A massive walkout took place at Columbia University in New York as faculty members protested the arrest and suspension of students at a pro-Palestinian protest. Over 100 arrests were made and tensions have been rising on campuses across the US, with more arrests happening at Yale. Columbia’s president mentioned discussions on the “crisis” and condemned antisemitic behavior. Student organizers denied accusations of antisemitism and blamed outside individuals for disruptions. Lawmakers visited Columbia to meet with Jewish students. Political leaders condemned the university’s crackdown on protests, calling for peaceful demonstrations. Graduations may be impacted as colleges navigate protests and disagreements on campus.
