Statement from President Tiefenthaler on ASA Resolution
January 27, 2014
Many people have asked me for my opinion on the American Studies Association's recent resolution to boycott Israeli academic institutions. I am opposed to this resolution because it is a threat to academic freedom, which is the foundation of the academy. However, I recognize that there are others, including at Colorado College, who support the ASA's resolution. As always, I respect civil discourse and engagement on this issue, as that too is a hallmark of academic freedom.
