Leopoldo Rodriguez\'s teachings are the embodiment of the words that Portland State University uses to market itself: Diverse, Engaged, International, and Sustainable. He is a great professor and we are lucky to have him at Portland State University. We are signing this petition to officially voice our disagreement with the refusal to grant tenure to Leopoldo Rodriguez. This petition will be sent to Dan Bernstine, school president, to Roy Koch, provost and vice president of academic affairs, and to Marvin A. Kaiser, dean of the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences Notes on Signing Petition: 1. Please explicitly indicate your affiliation with Portland State University in the comments section. 2. Please refrain from negative comments towards the dean or any other PSU officials. Our goal is to get Professor Rodriguez the tenured position that he deserves, not to condemn anyone for following bureaucratic protocol.
