(JNS) A University of Michigan professor, citing his support for the BDS movement in denying a student’s request in August for a letter of recommendation for a semester-long study-abroad program at Tel Aviv University, was sanctioned this week by the university.

The punishments against Professor John Cheney-Lippold include a stern warning, ineligibility for a merit increase for the 2018-2019 academic year, in addition to being ineligible to take an accredited sabbatical until the fall 2020 semester.
