Recently, the College Council funded a talk by Professor Noura Erakat entitled “From Ferguson to Palestine.”  This talk was educationally focused and led by an academic with scholarly credentials backed by the Institute for Humanities and MESALC.  Even though the College Council only funded Pr. Erakat’s talk, the Council was listed as sponsoring “Israeli Apartheid Week.”  To clarify, the Council funded this academic talk, but not the entire week of events. This may have been ambiguous on marketing materials and posters around Grounds that are not associated with the College Council.  If you have questions about College Council or its funding decisions, please speak with our President, Henry Reynolds (htr9du@virginia.edu).
