AAUP-AFT Executive Council Upholds Dr. Steven Salaita's Academic Freedom

The Executive Council of the Rutgers AAUP-AFT stands behind the AAUP Illinois statement and the national AAUP statement regarding the academic freedom of Professor Steven Salaita. We firmly uphold Professor Salaita's right to academic freedom and reject the notion that a faculty person can be fired or otherwise punished for their social media communications that in no way relate to their scholarship.
