Faculty respond to administrators’ open letter

Editor’s note: The Report has received a number of responses to the "open letter to faculty" authored by President James Garland and Vice Presidents Ronald Crutcher and Richard Norman. The length of these submissions exceeds the space available for the Commentary section of The Report. Because of the nature of the "open letter to faculty" and the importance of the issue to the university community, The Report is publishing these responses as part of a dialogue, which includes all received as of 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 24. This is an exceptional circumstance.

Future submissions on topics of interest to faculty and staff should be submitted to Bill Houk (physics) at, editor of Commentary. Commentary guidelines include a length limit of 500-600 words.

The Report will make every attempt to print commentaries in a timely manner. However, due to space limitations there is no guarantee that submissions received by the deadline for news items (5 p.m. on the Friday before publication) will result in publication the following week.
The responses can be found at
