UCI to continue collaborations with global entities, including those in Israel
— Irvine, Calif., November 14, 2012 —
UC Irvine’s student government, Associated Students of UCI, has passed a recommendation that the campus divest itself of investments with several companies that do business with Israel.
Such divestment is not the policy of the campus, nor is it the policy of the University of California. The UC Board of Regents’ policy requires this action only when the U.S. government deems it necessary. No such declaration has been made regarding Israel.
In the spirit and practice of active engagement with all peoples of that region, UCI has been extremely pleased with recent global collaboration between leaders and researchers here and those at top universities around the world, including Israel. The campus looks forward to continued constructive exchanges that benefit our students, faculty and community.
