Universities are preparing for commencement ceremonies this weekend amid pro-Palestinian protests and arrests across the country. At Virginia Commonwealth University, students walked out during Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s speech to protest his policies and arrests of pro-Palestinian student protesters in April. The University of Southern California held weeklong events after canceling the main ceremony due to safety concerns over protests. USC Provost canceled Muslim student Asna Tabassum’s speech, sparking tensions. Universities like UC Berkeley, Wharton, UNC Chapel Hill, and UT Austin are implementing safety measures and warning against disruptions with the possibility of arrests.
