SAFS Brock writes to President protesting her office’s connection to pro-Palestine Panel

On November 21, 2023, the Brock chapter of SAFS wrote to Brock President Lesley Rigg to protest her office’s connection to a pro-Palestine academic panel held at Brock on November 27th.  The event was hosted by the President’s Advisory Committee on Human Rights, Equity and Decolonization.  SAFS Brock noted that any connection by the President was a violation of institutional neutrality, a point that was reinforced by news coverage, social media posts and editorials.  Rigg and Brock Communication’s office have chosen to characterize the conflict as one centering on academic freedom, and have taken no action to address SAFS Brock’s concerns.
