Petitions to support Carole Vance and Kim Hopper

The petitions site is here. There are different petitions to sign, depending on who you are – there is more information on the site.

The Department of Sociomedical Sciences at Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health has terminated two prominent public health professors Carole S. Vance (a medical anthropologist specializing in gender and female sexuality) and Kim Hopper (a medical anthropologist specializing in homelessness) without cause or compensation after more than 25 years of distinguished service.

At the same time that Columbia University has just announced a record-shattering $6.1 billion haul from the capital campaign, Columbia’s School of Public Health has decided that non-tenured faculty who don’t bring in at least 80% of the salaries in grant money must go – regardless of the quality of their teaching or the impact of their scholarship.
