|Clarification concerning the IAM report on BGU: $8 Million donation suspended|
Please note that Prof. Carmi is not nor I think has ever been a member of the Vaadat Minuyim Elyonah of BGU. This is the committee that grants promotions and is the academic committee which recommends tenure.
Therefore, she had nothing to do with his promotion. Any statement otherwise is totally inaccurate. Decisions of this committee are made by vote. Each member votes completely independently. For example, I have seen several situations in which the Rector voted one way, but was overruled by the overall committee vote.
Membership in this committee is decided in voting by all the BGU professors and associate professors, not by the Rector nor by the President.
Neve Gordon's tik for tenure passed this committee not recently, but about 5 or 6 years ago. This had nothing to do with Prof. Carmi. Also, the present Rector was not in office nor a member of the Vaadat Minuyim Elyonah during any of the procedures involving Neve Gordon.
The Vaadat Minuyim Elyonah is a purely academic body that considers academic achievements only.
Please correct and publicize the inaccuracies in this report.
Prof. Natan Kopeika,
member of the BGU Vaadat Minuyim Elyonah, and IAM supporter
