Remove Gianforte's Name from MSU Computer Science Department

This petition had 643 supporters

The Montana State University College of Engineering has an established reputation for excellence, higher reason, thoughtful discourse, and collaboration. But this reputation is currently tarnished by association with a man who publicly assaulted a reporter for simply doing his job and asking a pressing question.

Not only was this violence in direct conflict with the Constitution's First Amendment - protecting the rights of a free press - it represents a preference to violence over reason. A preference that is both fundamentally wrong and must not be associated with our University. 

Please join me in signing this petition to remove Gianforte's name from the "Gianforte School of Computing" at Montana State University.
