PEN America Responds to Texas A&M University News

Jeremy C. Young, senior manager for free expression and education at PEN America, issued a statement condemning Texas A&M University’s proposed plan to remove tenure and faculty status for its librarians. He writes:

This plan at Texas A&M is fundamentally misguided. Texas is at the epicenter of a nationwide book banning frenzy, and the state’s lieutenant governor has made no secret of his political attacks on higher education. Given their unique role in the academy, librarians are obviously implicated in these political battles over free expression, literature, and knowledge. Now, at Texas A&M, they may have to participate in these battles without the rights and privileges of academic freedom and shared governance, free speech protections, eligibility for tenure, and representation in faculty senates and on faculty committees. The consequences for research, teaching, and learning in the university community could be grave.
