Quote Of The Day

“There are some things that we disagree on, no question about it.”

- Dean Chenette referring to administration and the English Department. The Dean and Cappy met with concerned faculty and students in the Jade Parlor last night. Dean Chenette also said that next time, less information will be made available about what faculty members are being cut:
“I don’t envision publishing every single department’s situation. My concern is that it ignites jealousies, rumors and senses of favoritism."

This really worries me. I feel that Vassar should remain a very transparent and honest institution. It is understandable that layoffs must be made in the current financial climate, but hiding them behind a veil of secrecy will not will not make them any more bearable.
