U Of I Off Professor’s Group Censure List 

(Urbana, IL)  —  The University of Illinois is no longer on the censure list with the American Association of University Professors. The professor’s group voted over the weekend to remove the school from the list. AAUP members censured the U of I back 2015 for revoking an offer to professor Steven Salaita because of his comments about Israel. The AAUP said the university “violated basic tenets of academic freedom” when it revoked Salaita’s offer.
