Northeastern U. bans Students for Justice in Palestine

(JNS.org) Northeastern University’s Center for Student Involvement has banned the anti-Israel group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) for the intimidation of students on campus. According to a letter sent to SJP by the director of the Center for Student Involvement, Jason Campbell-Foster, the group has been banned for at least one year and its board members are banned from serving on any future board within the center. Additionally, SJP members must undergo training by university administrators for reinstatement.

“You have not shown a concerted effort to improve your practices and educate your members on how to properly operate your organization within the boundaries of university policy,” Campbell-Foster wrote.

The ban is connected to a February incident in which SJP members distributed mock eviction notices underneath the doors of several residence halls on campus during the mid-term exam period. Northeastern University’s Hillel chapter said the mock eviction notices were “part of a campaign of intimidation and fear used to manipulate public opinion against Israel.”
