CSUSM College of Business Administration concerned faculty started this petition to CSUSM and

A university depends upon creating a safe environment for all members of the community, including faculty, staff, and especially students. Acts of sexual harassment and other inappropriate behaviors violate not only the safety of the community but also moral and legal codes.

Professor Chetan Kumar has been accused of engaging in such behavior against at least three CoBA students and a thorough investigation led CSUSM to conclude that these allegations were substantiated and warranted his termination and dismissal from his position as Associate Professor of Management Information Systems.

But the California Faculty Association (CFA), which supposedly advocates for students, chose to abandon its principles and defended the professor's actions. And CSUSM chose to bend to the pressures of the CFA  and rescind its decision to terminate Kumar.

The CSUSM College of Business Administration community strongly condemns the violations perpetrated by Kumar not only insofar as their harmful effects on our students, but as a betrayal of his position of authority as a faculty member. 

Allowing this professor to return to campus would have a serious, deleterious effect on other students, faculty, and staff, and his mere presence would make many members of the campus community feel unsafe.

Join our efforts to express our grave disapproval of the California Faculty Association for defending a faculty member's unacceptable behavior above the interests of providing a safe environment for students, faculty, and staff.

Join our efforts to express our disappointment in CSUSM administration for caving to pressures rather than sticking to its initial decision to what was right, just, and necessary to uphold the ideals and values that lie at the core of its institutional mission.

Sign the petition to call upon the administration of CSUSM to show a real commitment to creating a safe environment for students, faculty, and staff that does not tolerate behavior like the one exhibited by Kumar.
