The University of Minnesota student body passed a controversial referendum on Sunday.
The All Campus Elections Commission announced shortly after 1 p.m. that a referendum that calls on the University to divest from companies involved with Israel passed by 217 votes. The vote comes after a contentious pre-vote debate between advocates.
3,392 students voted "yes" and 3,175 students voted "no" on the referendum, a margin of 3.4 percent.
At the University of Minnesota we promote a climate of open, thoughtful and civil debate among our students, who bring great passion and energy to their positions, causes and elections. That is important to me, and I respect the right of our students to express their opinions through ballots or other initiatives. All in our community have the right to do that regardless of their points of view.
