CU Student Government Supports Churchill Firing, Professors Opposed Sign Petition

The University of Colorado Student Union voted 9-6 to support the committee recommendations calling for Churchill's firing. (h/t PirateBallerina)

Meanwhile some professors have signed a petition arguing that Churchill's situation represents a threat to academic freedom and would have a "chilling" effect on universities across the nation, and therefore conclude that he should not be fired.

Nice to see students demonstrating independent thought, remaining unswayed by professors in CYA mode.
