Private university bans Students for Justice in Palestine as Middle East fallout spreads

A Massachusetts-based private university has banned a student chapter of the National Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) on its campus amid the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict, becoming the first U.S.-based private university to do so.

Brandeis was founded as a nonsectarian Jewish university in 1948.
