The AAUP is circulating the following petition on behalf of Laurie Rubel. Please sign and share with colleagues. The attacks directed at Dr. Rubel are an example of disturbing trends we will address during an upcoming week focused on the problem of targeted harassment.
A robust affirmation of academic freedom is one that circulates to the entire college community, is publicly available, and supports the faculty’s right to publish on controversial matters of public importance. We stand with the PSC in urging the City University leadership to issue such a public statement of support for Dr. Rubel and to establish joint faculty-administration task forces on academic freedom on the campuses. Today’s toxic political and media environment demands a constructive collaboration on this matter of shared concern, at Brooklyn College and across the country.
