Di Carlo also is Temple’s student media coordinator and is responsible for advising The Temple News. The unavoidable conflict of interest should have been made apparent in the report.
An article about an academic freedom resolution in the Dec. 6 issue of The Temple News overstated the amount of people Temple’s Association of University Professionals represents. TAUP represents approximately 1,150 of the university’s faculty, librarians and academic professionals.
