FSU Response to Boston Globe Hit Job

4/14/2022

Dear FSU Members, 

Like many of you, we were troubled by the recent editorial – or rather hit job – in the Boston Globe that repeated the ugly narrative that UMB faculty are racist.  The worst thing about it – aside from the damage it does to individual faculty, our students, and the university as a whole – is that the narrative comes directly from our own Administration in a transparent attempt to silence faculty.
