South of the border…

the American Association of University Professors has launched an awareness and action campaign in response to concerns that recent court decisions do not bode well for full academic freedom at public colleges and universities in the USA (more here).   They emphasize the need to fortify academic freedom with strong policy language (the breakfast of academic champions).

    Perhaps what we really need to is to hire more academic mercenaries? You know, those aloof managerial class individuals who travel from university to university wrecking havoc and then moving on to repeat the job elsewhere. Seriously, they need to be held to account for the current situation/mess and, as faculty, we must a demand a return to the collegial governance system that protects fundamental principles of academic life like academic freedom.
