Professor Watchlist -- Sign the Petition to Join


"Professor Watchlist" by Turning Point USA was founded to "identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of fiscal responsibility, free markets, and limited government." This blacklist allows students to submit names of professors who do or say things that are presumably opposed to conservative principles. Upon hearing that two professors from Notre Dame were on the watchlist, 100 of their colleagues petitioned the "Professor Watchlist" to be added to it themselves in a show of solidarity and to uphold academic freedom. You are invited to add your name to the watchlist. Visit Free Academics website and click on Take Action to sign the petition. To find out more about the Professor Watchlist, read a recent article from the Washington Post.
