“The current COVID-19 vaccination and testing policy blatantly violates our universities’ commitments to equity, inclusivity, and diversity,” the letter states.

“The policy explicitly divides our university communities into two groups, the vaccinated and the unvaccinated, and then adds to the latter group a requirement to seek an exemption and to regularly undergo onerous biological testing.”

The professors called for the policy to be “repealed immediately and that it be replaced with a policy whereby students, staffand faculty have  freedom of choice regarding vaccination and testing.”
