Grassley formally questions Duke's academic freedom after dismissal of Evan Charney

Duke’s Sanford School of Public Policy drew some ire when it decided not to renew Professor Evan Charney’s contract and he had to stop teaching at the end of the Spring 2019 semester. Now it has also attracted the official attention of Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and the Senate Committee on Finance. Grassley recently penned an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal and sent a formal letter to President Vincent Price requesting answers about Charney’s case.
