AAUP letter sparks local and national media

  1. Have the Foreign language 14 attempted to get legal counsel for this situation? I don't understand how this could be legal.

  2. The University assures us that their lawyers approved all procedures and criteria used to fire the foreign language instructors. We have been told by a very well-respected local lawyer that we would not be able to recover what we would have to spend on a lawsuit. We have also been told by a faculty group on campus: "The University has acted immorally and unethically, and totally within the law."


Thanks for your support!
