The Council of University of California Faculty Associations, an umbrella organization for the Faculty Associations (FAs) at each UC campus, Joins the Call for University of California to end relationship with General Dynamics over GD's role in immigrant minor separation camps.
UC’s Contract with General Dynamics Information Technology
June 21, 2018
Dear President Napolitano,
The Board of the Council of UC Faculty Associations applauds you for your forthright support for UC’s undocumented students, your lawsuit against the Trump administration’s rescission of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and your strong public statement regarding the Trump Administration’s policy of separating immigrant families at the border.
In this spirit, we urge you to act positively on the June 18, 2018 UC-AFT call to sever ties between the University of California and General Dynamics Information Technology, a contractor for the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement. In addition, UC faculty are concerned with outsourcing of the Analytical Writing Placement exam to this contractor who is helping run the child separation program.
On behalf of the CUCFA Board,
President, Council of UC Faculty Associations,
Professor of Medicine, UCSF
