FROM THE CHANCELLOR
Interim Chancellor Phil DiStefano
As you know, the Board of Regents held a special meeting on Feb. 3
to address concerns on Ward Churchill's essay, "Some People
Push Back: On the Justice of Roosting Chickens." The essay
is evoking a great deal of public response and I know that it is affecting
many of our faculty, staff and students in different ways.
