University of Colorado AAUP Condemns Adjunct Firing
The University of Colorado AAUP chapter has just issued a new report about the dismissal of Phil Mitchell, a conservative adjunct history professor fired at the University of Colorado. It's not yet up on a website, so I posted it on mine (some formatting is awkward, and many appendices are not available online.
Let's hope that the defenders of Ward Churchill's academic freedom will also defend Phil Mitchell's liberty. It should be noted that there are three threads to the Mitchell firing, only one of which is the usual story we hear of leftists firing a conservative professor. The key part to Mitchell's 2007 firing was that he embarrassed his colleagues in resisting his 2005 firing. And, of course, he is an adjunct without a union, which makes him extremely vulnerable.
