Johns Hopkins University’s contract to provide emergency medical response training to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement ended this week and will not be renewed following student protests, Newsweek reports.

A spokesperson for ICE told Newsweek that the contract has "closed and was scheduled to close at this time,” as Johns Hopkins announced in September. The school had provided training for the agency for 15 years before students began protesting the agency over the Trump administration’s crackdown on immigration, at one point occupying an administration building and refusing to leave.

“In keeping with our core missions of education and patient care, this program trains emergency medical personnel and develops protocols for law enforcement officers to provide immediate medical response to individuals in need,” the university said in a statement to Inside Higher Ed last September. They added that the officers they “train work to combat a diverse array of criminal activity, including human rights violations, human smuggling and trafficking, and transnational gang activity.”

Johns Hopkins did not provide a response to Newsweek when contacted about the matter.
