A years-old debate is rising again re-
garding student efforts to lobby the Uni-
versity to divest from companies thought
to be contributing to human rights viola-
tions in Israel.
Students supporting divestment and
students proposing investment in human
aid projects in the region have organized
campaigns whose public presence has
grown visibly over the last week,fueled by
a potential ASSU bill and a flyer cam-
paign.The debate recalls past battles over
divestment at Stanford — one decades
ago against apartheid in South Africa and
another three years ago, when the Under-
graduate Senate voted on but failed to
pass a bill asking the University trustees to
reevaluate Stanford’s investment choices.
Senate Dissolution Postponed
On Tuesday, the Senate voted down a
bill that would dissolve the current Sen-
ate on May 11 to make way for the sena-
tors-elect, effectively postponing the
transfer of office until the eighth week of
the quarter, two weeks behind schedule.
Although senators cited reasons such
as finalization of appropriations trans-
fers, a green events checklist and an
Stanford yield rate may
be highest ever

Ahead of Shawn Abbott’s departure
to New York University, the Stanford di-
rector of admission said about 72 to 73
percent of students admitted to Stanford
this year have accepted their offers. 2,300
applicants were accepted during early
and regular admission.
“It looks as though our yield this year
will be our strongest ever,”Abbott wrote
in an e-mail to The Daily.
