Boycott De Paul University

Dear Colleague,

Kindly join us in a silent boycott of DePaul University. When academic freedom is silenced, may the institution be shrouded in its own silence.

For details see the following websites:

It is within your power not to give money to DePaul University, not to accept lectureships at DePaul University, not to accept guest speaker invitations at DePaul University, not to teach as an Adjunct Professor at DePaul University, not to buy DePaul University merchandise, not to go to school at DePaul University, not to send your children to school at DePaul University. If you work at DePaul University, it is within your power to find another job and leave without communication. It is within your power to cease communication with Chuck Suchar or Dennis H. Holtschneider.

Please consider this a modest attempt at resisting the further erosion of academic freedom, and please kindly forward the message on to colleagues.

Respectfully,

Sigrunn
