Calling on the Regents to Protect Academic Integrity

Ashley Thorne

At Minding the Campus, California Association of Scholars (CAS) president John Ellis has an article on the investigation of a professor at UCLA. The professor, David Delgado Shorter, included a link, "Boycotting Israel," on his course website.

Ellis observes that the University of California buried the case and has been on its guard since the publication of CAS's 2012 report A Crisis of Competence: The Corrupting Effect of Political Activism in the University of California. He writes:

This episode confirms that neither the faculty nor the administration can be trusted to protect the core values of the University. That leaves only the Board of Regents, a body with the constitutional duty to protect both its academic integrity and public reputation. What will it do?
