U of O Watch mission, in the words of Foucault...

"One knows … that the university and in a general way, all teaching systems, which appear simply to disseminate knowledge, are made to maintain a certain social class in power; and to exclude the instruments of power of another social class. … It seems to me that the real political task in a society such as ours is to criticise the workings of institutions, which appear to be both neutral and independent; to criticise and attack them in such a manner that the political violence which has always exercised itself obscurely through them will be unmasked, so that one can fight against them." -- Foucault, debating Chomsky, 1971.

Together, they will have presided over the rape culture era at U of O, showing the way to all institutions similarly afflicted.

Part of the made-at-U-of-O solution is mandatory education on rape culture suppression, including for staff.

Will there be a media event when Allan Rock and the VPs attend their first re-education session? Will they receive the same curriculum as the deans of faculties, and will the curriculum be shared into the public domain to the benefit of all?
