Professor says Skidmore College won’t punish him for attending pro-police rally, as students demanded | The College Fix
David Peterson contacted The College Fix on Sept. 7 and said that while he was under investigation because of the students, he was cautiously optimistic.
“The Associate Dean of the Faculty who has overseen the investigation has informed me that the administration will not be recommending any sanctions against me,” Peterson (above) wrote in an email, referring to Janet Casey. Two days later, he had been cleared.
Peterson and his wife Andrea, also a Skidmore art professor, observed a “Back the Blue” rally on July 30 in Saratoga Springs. Campus activists identified them as Skidmore faculty and included their firing on a far-reaching list of demands for the administration late last month. They also called for the firing of Mark Vinci, a music professor, for unrelated reasons.
Well that's good.
