Just 3 hours after the College Council passed the historic motion to suspend the Pitzer College's study abroad program with the University of Haifa, Pitzer’s president Melvin Oliver rejected that motion. This is unprecedented in Pitzer's history. To our knowledge, this is the second time in the college's 56 years of existence that the Board of Trustees or President have unilaterally rejected a democratic motion. Both of these incidents have been about Palestine.
President Oliver has outright ignored the process of shared governance. This vote passed at a final tally of 67-28 (eight abstentions), which sent a powerful message to the nation and the world that Pitzer stands in support with Palestinians. President Oliver disrespectfully rejected this by saying he would not implement the Council recommendation.
Students, faculty, and staff alike should be outraged at this flagrant disregard for Pitzer’s values and democratic processes. We will continue to organize to suspend Haifa and demand that President Oliver reverse his decision.
Please sign and send this petition in support.
PRESIDENT OLIVER'S NUMBER (refer to the bottom for a calling script): (909) 621-8198
