Welcome. Please use the pages on this site to read and sign petitions and letters regarding the shocking firing of internationally-renowned, long time professors from the Columbia University School of Public Health. The Department of Sociomedical Sciences at Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health has terminated Professors Carole S. Vance and Kim Hopper without cause or compensation after more than 25 years of distinguished service.
At the same time that Columbia University has just announced a record-shattering $6.1 billion haul from the capital campaign, Columbia’s School of Public Health has decided that non-tenured faculty who don’t bring in at least 80% of the salaries in grant money must go – regardless of the quality of their teaching or the impact of their scholarship.
*NOTE* You must provide a name and email and make a comment on the petition to sign, but we will not share, trade, sell, or otherwise make your email available to anyone else, and we will never make any emails public. We will also not use them to contact you about other causes.
