A Statement From the Department of English
The UC Irvine English department stands against the politics of bigotry and willful ignorance. As citizens and educators, our faculty are committed to opposing the normalization of these ideas and to defending the people most threatened by their material impacts. The department pledges to act in solidarity with students who are targets of persecution, and will refuse to comply with any institutional policy or action that explicitly enacts or tacitly enables such persecution.
