Abstract:

»There is another stark contrast with Salaita in the case of long-time, now retired, faculty member Professor Robert Weissberg. According to the AAUP report, Weissberg "regularly advocated principles of white supremacy" and frequently spoke at white supremacist gatherings. Among the views he espouses is that "Blacks generally have a well-deserved reputation for hair-triggered collective violence." "The administration took no action against him, reflecting a tolerance for offensive extramural expression not witnessed in the Salaita case," the report notes. The AAUP report largely endorses the findings of the UIUC academic senate's own Committee on Academic Freedom and Tenure, which last December faulted the administration's violations of policy and procedures.«
