CUNY Ph.D. Students Postpone Vote on Israel Boycott

September 15, 2014
 

The Doctoral Students' Council of the City University of New York Graduate Center on Friday postponed a vote on a resolution calling for a boycott of Israeli universities and for CUNY to cut ties to Israeli businesses and other entities.

The council said that the vote would be rescheduled for a time when observant Jews would be able to attend.
