The registered student demonstration scheduled for Friday March 30, 2018 is open to members of the Hofstra University community with valid Hofstra ID cards. Because of the volume and intensity of attention on this event by groups and individuals not associated with Hofstra, the student organizers and University jointly decided to move the event inside the Student Center. The organizers want to ensure that this event stays true to their original intent to stage a safe, orderly and peaceful demonstration. In addition, the student organizers have chosen to close the event to media. They will be available to speak to media after the event, which ends at 2 PM. The University will arrange a meeting the week of April 9 where President Rabinowitz, other senior University leaders and student representatives will discuss the diverse views on this subject.
