Dear Board Members,
Please do not be confused about this vote of no confidence. Please do not trivialize it.
We the faculty do not object to change. What we cannot abide is the wrong KIND of change.
In my seven years here, I have fallen deeply in love with the mission of this institution and the atmosphere and attitude that makes carrying out that mission possible.
To see that atmosphere and the valuable academic infrastructure being torn apart during the last two years troubles me deeply. I beg you to take this crisis seriously, and to have enough respect for your incredibly talented and dedicated faculty to listen to their concerns.
