A Message from MESAAS Faculty

We, the faculty of the Department of Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African Studies(MESAAS) at Columbia University, would like to express our strong disapproval of the efforts of the university administration to intimidate our striking graduate students by threatening to hold up their teaching appointments in the spring.

We consider these tactics unproductive and unconscionable, and we call on the administration to work with our teaching assistants and their union representatives to bring a just and quick end to this strike – which is having such devastating effects on the entire university community.
