ABOR Chair statement
Below is a statement from Arizona Board of Regents Chair Fred DuVal.
“The Arizona Board of Regents supports free speech and expression on each of our public university campuses, but will not accept harassment, bullying and similar incitements to violence against our students, professors and staff members. Turning Point USA should be ashamed for its targeted intimidation campaign against university professors, an effort that culminated this week with an ASU instructor – simply walking to his car after class – being shoved to the ground by a pair of Turning Point operatives. This organization needs to stop putting people at risk.
“The board stands fully behind President Crow – and each of our university leaders – and will do everything possible to ensure our campuses remain focused on learning and free of violence, threats and harassment.”
