Do you care about academic integrity? Recently three Penn State employees are supposed to conclude an inquiry into whether PSU professor Michael Mann violated university policy. If these three employees so choose, they can clear Mann of wrongdoing and cut off any further investigation.
If the initial inquiry decides that Mann needs to be investigated further, a committee of five tenured Penn State professors will be appointed to do the job. Again, there will be no external oversight. Does this seem right to you?
Even if the Penn State investigation committee finds that Mann did wrong, they are under no obligation to inform the public—the only people they are required to inform are Mann’s donors. Again, does this seem right to you?
Come join us when we take a stand for honesty, integrity and truth on February 12th, at noon, in front of the Hetzel Union Building on Penn State’s University Park Campus (Pollock Road entrance). Your commitment and concern will make a difference! This rally is jointly sponsored by PSU Young Americans for Freedom and The 9-12 Project of Central PA.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOCUS AND INTENT OF THIS IS PROTEST IS ABOUT PSU AND ITS ACADEMIC INTEGRITY. This is NOT intended to be about Climategate issues although feel free to bring your hockey sticks!!
