The fine writer Jamie Kalven has written about the 1960s Kalven Report at the University of Chicago, named for his father. The Kalven Report is used as an excuse by the administration to prevent divestment from companies that support the repressive government of Sudan, and Jamie has some wise words about that. (As for me, I'm not sure I think the Kalven Report was ever right or a good idea, since I don't accept the premise that institutional stands on issues censor individual members from taking dissenting positions.)
