Simone de Beauvoir Institute’s position statement regarding higher administration’s most recent approach to the student strike

Dear colleagues:

There has been much discontent with the higher administration’s most recent approach to the students’ “strike.” See the following web site:

The Simone de Beauvoir Institute (SdBI) profs and students involved in Winter 2012 courses have discussed this issue and agreed on a response, in the form of a joint statement. See the following web site:

As is stated in our collective piece, we do hope Concordia University’s higher administration will consider reversing its current approach and instead commit to engaging in dialogue with students and faculty so that “strike” concerns can be addressed.

Best regards,
