Letter sent in to Times Higher Education

The Open letter to Teesside University that was first posted here last week has now been sent to Times Higher Education. We managed to obtain nearly 800 signatures within a week. This covered individuals from over 100 universities across dozens of countries and five continents. The global reaction to this letter and the solidarity shown by the academic community this past week has been amazing. We thank all of you who signed the letter, who championed this message, and who shared the link and message to others on social media. Now we must hope that Teesside University takes heed of this call, and that other HEIs pay attention and think twice before following similar action.

 

The full letter and roster of signatories will be published in-full via THE‘s online page. An abridged version of the letter will run in-print later this week. Please follow the hashtag #TeessideProfs on twitter for updates on when the letter is officially published.
