Officials at the liberal University of California, Berkeley again asked conservative author Ann Coulter to speak at the school after initially canceling the April 27 event, both parties confirmed in statements Thursday evening.

Her speech had been scheduled for next week, but now will be held May 2. The university said the change is partly to find an "appropriate, protectable venue" to house the talk on immigration policy.

"We have an unwavering commitment to providing for the safety and well-being of speakers who come to campus, our students and other members of our campus and surrounding communities," Chancellor Nicholas Dirks said. "While there may, at times, be tension between these paired commitments, we cannot compromise either."

Coulter responded on Twitter: "I agreed to Berkeley's conditions not to call their bluff, but because I wanted to speak. Turned out: Did call bluff."

Coulter was invited by Berkeley College Republicans, and the appearance was booked through Young America's Foundation. Neither has disclosed where the discussion will take place.

Berkeley has weathered contentious events involving conservative speakers. In February, former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos' visit was crashed by violent protesters.
