Important Meeting for Students, Faculty and Administration, Re: Academic Freedom, Tenure Process
DePaul Faculty Council Meeting
Wednesday, January 12, 2011, 2:00 - 5:00 p.m.
55 East Jackson, Chicago, IL (CNA Building), Room 406A
This will be a very important meeting that will potentially have an historic impact on DePaul's tenure and promotion process. There will be time on the agenda to discuss the 2010 tenure denials, and to present the attached motion related to Professor Namita Goswami's academic freedom violation. The tenure discussion is likely to start at around 4pm even though the meeting itself starts at 2pm. It is very important that faculty, staff, and students attend. Please announce the event to everyone you know.
About DePaul Academic Freedom Committee
The DePaul Academic Freedom Committee (AFC) is an student organization that seeks address violations of academic freedom at DePaul University in Chicago, IL, USA. The intial campaign which led to the creation of the DePaul AFC and this website was that in support of Dr. Norman Finkelstein and the politically motivated manner in which his tenure was denied.
The DePaul AFC has been reorganized in 2011 as part of a campaign in favor of Dr. Namita Goswami of the Department of Philosophy, who has been denied tenure and represents a grave violation of academic freedom. We have sought to put up all relevant documents for her case on this website.
Since the case of Dr. Finkelstein, DePaul University has been the subject of a number of academic freedom controversies and this site has sought to keep track of the university's issues.
