College statement: Student Senate resolution on University of Haifa Study Abroad Program

Pitzer College is aware of the resolution passed by the Student Senate recommending the suspension of the direct-enroll Study Abroad program with the University of Haifa and respects the right of that elected body to act within our shared governance structure. It should be noted that the Student Senate does not speak for the College, nor does it represent the views of all Pitzer students. 

President Thacker is committed to the educational mission of the College, to academic freedom, and to maintaining a safe and productive campus learning environment for all. The president will not accept—if and when that time comes—any College resolution antithetical to these principles.
