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:
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!
