We, the students of the American University of Beirut, are opening this 
petition in support of Professor Steven Salaita; we are deeply concerned 
Professor Salaita is once again being wrongfully targeted for his 
advocacy on behalf of Palestinian self-determination. Professor Salaita 
had been unanimously recommended for the full-time position of Director 
of the Center for American Studies and Research by an interdepartmental 
search committee. However, the job search for the Director position was 
abruptly cancelled by President Fadlo Khuri on March 30th, 2016. Khuri 
cited ‘procedural irregularities’ within the search committee as the 
reason for this cancellation without initiating an internal investigation.
