Pro-Palestinian activists focus on university endowments in Israel-Hamas conflict

Pro-Palestinian protesters on college campuses are demanding disclosure and divestment from companies profiting from the Israel-Hamas conflict. The University of Minnesota disclosed a minimal $5 million of endowment investments tied to Israeli companies and U.S. defense contractors. Jewish leaders are concerned about potential fallout, highlighting the pros and cons of transparency. College endowments are targeted by activists seeking divestment, but most institutions resist to protect financial aid and maintain apolitical investment decisions. Some schools, like Northwestern University, agree to disclose holdings in response to student pressure, fueling demands for complete transparency and divestment in the University of Minnesota.
