Columbia University President Faces Backlash for Handling of Pro-Palestinian Protest

Columbia University President Nemat Minouche Shafik has come under renewed pressure following a campus oversight panel's criticism of her administration's handling of a pro-Palestinian protest. The panel accused the administration of clamping down on the protest and undermining academic freedom.

The controversy stems from a tent encampment set up by students protesting Israel's war against Hamas in Gaza. President Shafik's decision to summon New York police to dismantle the encampment sparked outrage among many students, faculty, and outside observers.

In response, the Columbia University Senate convened a meeting and subsequently passed a resolution condemning the administration's actions. The resolution stated that the administration's response had violated academic freedom and disregarded the privacy and due process rights of students and faculty members.

This incident has further intensified the scrutiny surrounding President Shafik's leadership, with many questioning her commitment to free expression and academic freedom. The situation remains fluid, and it is unclear what further actions the university will take in response to the Senate's resolution.
