In Response: Emory Journalism Supports AAUP’s Statements
To the Emory Community:
The Emory Journalism faculty fully supports the positions laid out in today’s letter from the Emory chapter of the American Association of University Professors. We continue to have strong objections to the decisions announced by Dean Forman on Sept. 14, and the secretive and non-collaborative manner in which they were reached.
The AAUP letter accurately reflects our thinking on matters of both process and substance. We wholeheartedly endorse the AAUP’s call for a full, formal and prompt review of the decisions and the process behind them.
