Faculty Rights Tip: We’ve got your back

In the post-election environment, faculty may feel we are under attack from emboldened political groups wishing to intimidate us. Allegations or actions taken by these groups could lead to campus investigations. And to avoid perceived negative media coverage or appease political interests, the campus may not do a thorough investigation and attempt to unjustly impose sanctions upon the faculty.

Don’t worry. CFA has your back.
