To the Editor:

Re “All 10 UC Chancellors condemn boycott of Israeli academics” (news story, Jan. 17):

We write to thank and support Chancellor Gary May and the other nine UC Chancellors for their letter opposing an academic boycott of Israeli academic institutions and/or individual scholars.

We share Chancellor May’s belief in the value of unfettered exchange of ideas and perspectives on our campuses, and appreciate his defense of these important principles.
