Your contributions are going to help us offer new interdisciplinary conference on teaching about the Arab Israeli conflict, if there is support and interest.
Your contributions are helping us go to meet potential allies and new members in the struggle to reverse the rising tide of anti-Israeli colleagues on college campuses and seek all professors of good will who seek to raise the level of discourse from polemics and propaganda to scholarship and contructive analysis.
Your contributions will help us expand our administrative services to better respond to our network subscribers with interactive features and quicker responses.
Your contributions will help us take our ads in major newspapers when our network comes together to speak out and to get out press releases with important SPME positions on academic issues.
Your contributions will help us provide clerical, administrative and staff support to chapter coordinators, task force and committee chairs as well as officers and others who are all donating their time with no compensation to SPME.
Your contributions will help SPME grow and show the world that professors care about the Middle East narrative on campus and will join other professors to support academic integrity and honest debate.
Your contributions will be sincerely appreciated and put to good use. We thanks those below and you in advance, for your generosity.
