Statement on Professor's Private Citizenship

Additional Statement on Professor's Private Citizenship and Antioch College

November 21, 2019

While I continue to support Dr. David Nibert’s individual rights to speak as a citizen and a scholar, I understand that his actions and those of others continue to be a source of disruption at Antioch College. To the extent that Dr. Nibert or others have interfered with the work of students, faculty, and staff there, I am disappointed.  Dr. Nibert’s positions are his own and are not those of Wittenberg University.  I want to reaffirm that we as an institution support Antioch’s right to make its own decisions with regard to its educational program, including the operation of its farm.

Michael L. Frandsen, Ph.D.
President, Wittenberg University
