University statement on ASUCR’s divestment resolution

Author: UCR News

The Associated Students of UCR passed a resolution last night calling for divestment from Israel. 

This resolution runs counter to UC Riverside’s longstanding position and practices, does not align with the university’s views, and does not affect the investment practices of the university. We strongly oppose this action and believe that it goes against the culture of open dialogue and discourse. 

The UCR community must be a place where all people feel welcome and safe, and where we engage constructively on complicated issues.
