Professors from around the world refuse to advise students to study or seek employment at University of Rochester

Hundreds of faculty members have signed an open letter to the University of Rochester's Board of Trustees refusing to advise students to study or seek employment at the University of Rochester. The letter states, “In the present circumstances, we cannot in good conscience encourage our students to pursue educational or employment opportunities” at the University of Rochester. 

Faculty members said they felt that the University only began to act appropriately once the EEOC complaint against the University became public, in order to save face. Signers of the letter to the Board of Trustees expressed their hope that their open letter would encourage the Board to take the complaint seriously and work to make Rochester a safer environment.
