Clock Is Ticking Towards UCLA’s Reopening on Jan. 2 and What Block Will Say or Not Say on the Israel Boycott Issue

We noted in a previous post that the chancellor at UC-San Diego commented (negatively) on the Israel boycott called by an academic group called the American Studies Assn.  See: http://uclafacultyassociation.blogspot.com/2013/12/uc-sd-chancellors-statement-on-american.html

Since that time, Inside Higher Ed has run stories on university officials and others who have also commented along with faculty reaction, pro and con.  For example:

and

The closure of UCLA until January 2nd gives Chancellor Block a temporary period in which he can avoid commenting.  It will be interesting to see he says – or doesn’t say – when the university reopens.

Happy New Year Chancellor!
