University administrators, as I see, couldn’t have handled the student protests any worse. Talk about heavy handed and tin ears. They would do better listening to the students than bending to the demands of some alumni and the threats of MAGA Republicans in Washington. At Columbia, the student demands are “divestment, financial transparency, and amnesty.” Why shouldn’t the administration agree with them. Or, at least, sit down and talk with and listen to the protesting students.
