SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (KION-TV)- UC Santa Cruz announced that in-person classes will resume on Monday morning just days after dozens of Pro-Palestinian protesters were arrested.

UC Santa Cruz Campus Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Lori Kletzer made the announcement on the campus website on Sunday morning.

The announcement comes after multiple Pro-Palestinian protesters were arrested early Friday morning for refusing to disperse an encampment that was blocking the main entrance to the campus.

The encampment was up for multiple weeks calling on the university as well as UC Santa Cruz to divest from Israel amid the ongoing war in Gaza.

A university official confirmed that protesters who were arrested early Friday morning were given a 626.4 notice under California Penal Code which means they cannot return to campus for two weeks.
