Ontario Tech reaches agreement with protesters, ending encampment

Ontario Tech University has reached an agreement with protesters to end an on-campus encampment. While a statement from the university said that it “is not aware of investments in any companies that are benefiting” from the conflict in Gaza, it will establish a Presidential Advisory Committee to explore the development of responsible investment practices and will publish a report outlining its investments and financial holdings. Students and faculty who participated in the protest will be protected from “academic and/or employment-based retaliation.” Ontario Tech will also fund three scholarships for undergraduate Palestinian students who have been displaced by the war.
