Letter of Support from UCLA Professor
You learn who your friends are when you go through difficult times.
It’s been instructive to see which colleagues from the University of California have (or have not) reached out to support or encourage me since I was fired. Some old friends have disappointed while others have surprised me—including some new friends I had not previously known while at the University. Recently, a professor of English at UCLA sent this unsolicited letter to the UCI Chancellor. I am publishing his extraordinary letter here with his permission:
Dear Chancellor Gillman:
I am reaching out to you as a member of the academic community of which you are a leader. I am sure you have already received letters on behalf of Dr. Aaron Kheriaty from those who knew him in person or worked with him at the University of California, Irvine.
