Demand that Principal Hitchcock Remove Academic Boycott Statement from Queen's Website sign now

We the undersigned join in demanding that Principal Hitchcock immediately remove from the Queen's University website her "statement" "on the academic boycott of Israeli universities being considered by Britain's University and College Union." We feel that this statement pre-empts debate about the very grave and pressing issues that prompted the UCU to consider such a significant action. Given Queen's University's mandate to "engage the world," educators must embrace this controversy as an opportunity to bring a subject of great import before our students, faculty, staff and wider university community. It should not be an excuse for a single administrator to pretend to speak for the entire community. In consultation with Middle East experts on the Queen's faculty, the principal's office should plan and fund a public forum on the subject of Israeli policies on the West Bank and Gaza and their impact on primary and secondary education with speakers representative of a range of different positions. Until that time, we call on Principal Hitchcock to retract her statement and desist from threats to add Queens name to petitions condemning the proposed boycott.
