One of your favorite professors might be adjunct faculty scuttling to different campuses to earn a living. He is not only a brilliant mind contributing to our understanding of globalization and social change, but also a mentor and teacher that pushes us as students to reach our full potential as researchers, writers, teachers, and activists.

It is alarming that Academic Freedom is under assault with the accusation of Professor Robinson at an institution that should encourage independent thinking and tolerance for varying points of view.
