WEDNESDAY, MARCH 9th, 4-6pm OPEN FORUM ON ACADEMIC FREEDOM


LOMA PELONA CENTER MAP

Dear Colleagues,

  • Erosion of academic freedom around teaching and research?
  • New UC Principles Regarding Intolerance?
  • Trigger warnings?
  • Gag orders at the university?
  • Who owns y​our syllabus?
  • Whose civility? whose freedom?

These are some of the important issues on our campus that have prompted the Faculty Association to hold a public forum on Academic Freedom and Shared Governance.  Please come!  The event is on Wednesday, March 9 from 4 to 6 pm at the Loma Pelona Center. (The Loma Pelona Center is located on campus near Manzanita Village and San Rafael residence halls. See our map – the Loma Pelona Center is circled in red in the lower left quadrant. For more information click here.)

Our featured speaker is Professor Hank Reichman, Vice President of the American Association of University Professors, and active member of the AAUP standing committee on academic freedom.  Professor Constance Penley (UCSB Film and Media Department) will provide a response.  Then we want to hear from you.  Refreshments provided.

Please come and please encourage your colleagues to attend.
