ANN ARBOR, April 10, 2024 ~ The American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan sent a letter to University of Michigan President Santa Ono and Vice President Timothy Lynch last week over concerns that a new university policy may violate students’ First Amendment rights on campus.

The letter is in reference to the school’s proposed anti-disruptive activity policy introduced following a disruption of a university by pro-Palestinian protestors calling for the university to divest from companies that provide military aid to Israel, with staff and students facing firing or expulsion if they break it. The ACLU said the policy is “vague and overbroad” and may disproportionally target students of color.
