Statement from the MN State College Faculty Union

This week the Minnesota State College Faculty Union took a public stand with Professor Gibney and in defense of academic freedom.

"If it is now discriminatory to teach about structural racism within the context of a college course, it is increasingly difficult for faculty and students to engage in free discussions around other challenging issues of the day. Will the two-year community and technical college administrations support the right of faculty to teach lessons on evolution, multiculturalism, social welfare, and the Holocaust if those lessons contradict the views held by their students? Such an environment would have a chilling effect on academic discussions throughout the system."
