James press confOn Monday, November 10, the Friends of James Kilgore held a press conference outside the Henry Adminstration building on the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign campus. They encouraged the Board of Trustees, meeting this Thursday, to reinstate Dr. Kilgore.

After a right-wing attack in the local newspaper, Kilgore was fired this last Spring. He is not allowed to teach or work at the University of Illinois.

A story at Inside Higher Education was published today with news of a final report regarding Kilgore’s hiring, as well as an interview with him responding. We are also publishing a copy of the report from the committee appointed by Provost Ilesanmi Adesida¬† and chaired by Professor Matthew Wheeler.

We are also including the statement by William Sullivan [pictured above], a UIUC professor in Landscape Architecture and member of the Friends of James Kilgore. You can read it here: Bill Sullivan statement
