Lee Bollinger, president of Columbia University, has issued a public statement about what the university has done in response to the appalling disruption of a speech by Jim Gilchrist. Though I and others were critical of their handling of the situation in the weeks after the incident, this letter spells out some changes in policy that I think bring the situation to a successful close. I am especially pleased to see the Student Caucus pass a unanimous resolution condemning the disruption and declaring that all student groups have a right to invite speakers without having those events attacked and disrupted by protestors. And I’m glad to see that they did take action against those individuals, both Columbia students and others, who jumped on stage and prevented the speaker from doing what he was invited to do. Kudos to Bollinger and the Columbia community.
