The San Jose Mercury News recently published an article that frames me as anti-Muslim, based on allegations submitted by two male graduate students who had been under my supervision. I just want you to know that I do not hold the views they accuse me of. The investigation is ongoing and I hope that you’ll understand that my family and I are going through a difficult time.
I have confidence in the integrity of due process at UC Santa Cruz. Preserving that integrity implies that I can not respond to the allegations in public. What I can only offer, at this time, are a few glimpses which I hope will reduce some of your concerns.
