Columbia University petition

I wish I could sign this petition. I'm almost tempted to go to Columbia just so that I can. That link points to this Higher Ed article as background.
A new book examines American colleges’ ties to Nazi Germany in the 1930s -- and chronicles a record characterized by indifference, complicity and collaboration.
The petition calls on Columbia to posthumously award a degree to a student expelled for protesting the Universities relationship with Nazi Germany. Really is the least they could do.
