  2. I am shocked that Columbia would consider letting such a renowned scholar as Carole Vance go. I strongly urge President Bollinger and Columbia University to reinstate her position. She remains a cutting edge, nationally important theorist on art, censorship, human rights, gender and sexuality studies. Many scholars and artists are forever indebted to her for her activism, mentorship and her expertise on our behalf. It is doubtful that I would be a tenured professor at the University of Michigan had I not had her ongoing support for my research and activism.

    The University of Michigan

  4. With intellectual gratitude to Carol Vance and hope for Columbia’s future, I’d like to add my name to the petition.

  5. I join the petition to support Carole Vance and Kim Hopper. As a fellow of public psychiatry and a physician interested in using mental health to work against inequality, racism and poverty, it is shameful and enraging to see that profiting from research is more important for the institution than excellence in education. The work of Kim Hooper has been an inspiration to work with the homeless. I hope this decision is revoked.

  6. A terrible decision.

    Naa Oyo A. Kwate
    Associate Professor of Human Ecology and of Africana Studies
    Rutgers University

  7. Please add my name to the petition. Carol Vance has been enormously influential. Her dismissal constitutes a dismissal of an entire field of innovative thought and activism.
