U faculty members say: "I'm Spartacus!"

"Last week, the University of Minnesota threatened to discipline nine students for taking part in a noisy protest at Coffman student union in March."

"Now, more than 20 faculty members are demanding that they, too, be disciplined, in a show of solidarity."

"Organizers have been collecting signatures on what they jokingly call an “I’m Spartacus” letter, daring administrators to treat them just like the students who took part in the March 12 demonstration. The students were accused of violating the student code of conduct, and told they could face expulsion or other penalties, for disrupting a ribbon-cutting ceremony on a newly-renovated floor of the student union."

Maura Lerner has the story in the Strib.
