Statements From the Department of English Faculty
We, the faculty of the UCD English department, stand against the politics of bigotry and willful ignorance. As citizens and educators, we are committed to opposing the normalization of these ideas and to defending the people most threatened by their material impacts. We pledge to act in solidarity with students who are targets of persecution, and we will refuse to comply with any institutional policy or action that explicitly enacts or tacitly enables such persecution.

In ballots cast over the weekend of March 17, 2018, a majority of the Academic Senate Faculty in the English Department have voted to indicate their support for the bargaining goals of their graduate student workers organized into UAW Local 2865.
