Dartmouth Must Defend Faculty and Student Rights

We remain concerned about the wave of intimidation and threats that have swept campuses and the country this year, including, very recently, in the case of Mark Bray, a lecturer in history at Dartmouth College.

Following an article on the website Campus Reform that accused Bray of “endors[ing] Antifa violence,” he has been subject of death threats and targeted online harassment.

We have recently seen a surge in politically motivated, targeted harassment against academics, especially those in ethnic and gender studies.

We call on the administration of Dartmouth College to speak out clearly and forcefully in defense of the rights of faculty and students generally, and Bray specifically, and to condemn the targeted harassment of Bray.
