Today Columbia University President Lee C. Bollinger released a statement
addressing the violent student protest
that erupted in the middle of a speech by the founder of the Minutemen Project on October 4th
. The statement addresses, among other things, governance of student organizations and student-sponsored events, as well as disciplinary proceedings instituted against some of the students involved for violating Rules of University Conduct.
Coincidence? Or an attempt to fly under the radar and avoid drawing attention to the free speech fiascoes on Columbia’s campus this fall? You decide.
