AMHERST — More than three dozen Five Colleges staff and professors have asked to add their names to the Professor Watchlist, a website launched by a national conservative student organization to highlight academics who allegedly “advance a radical agenda.”

Nearly 10,000 professors from across the country have asked to join the list in support of those named to the list last month. The American Association of University Professors is looking to have 12,800 sign the list.
