Revenue trumps research

Nice article in the Daily about turning research land in UMore Park into a gravel mine and housing community. One researcher, Dr. DiCostanzo, was reprimanded for publicly criticizing the U's plans for UMore land. Wait a minute...Doesn't the U's academic freedom statement protect such speech??? The Senate's AFT Committee should look into this. Other faculty are also upset about it and complain that the U did not consult with them sufficiently before moving forward with the plan.
