I thought this was an Egypt joke when I saw it on Twitter two minutes ago, but according to this link it’s true — José Ramón de la Torre, the president of the University of Puerto Rico has just resigned.

More soon.

Update | Confirmation of the resignation, but no new details, from Primera Hora.

Second Update | Eduardo Ibarra, former President of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Puerto Rico — and a UPR Rio Piedras alumni, is calling for the police presence at UPR to be replaced by “a group of graduates who have credibility and trust among students and entire university community.” This alumni group would “act as moderators in guiding and directing the institution to students without restrain their freedom of expression.”
