Architecture Professor is “Dismayed and Greatly Disappointed” at Administration’s “Egregious” Behavior


Dear Chancellor Syverud,

I am writing to implore you to allow the students in The General Body to access legal counsel. I am dismayed and greatly disappointed that the university would act in such an egregious manner and clear disregard for the students’ legal rights.

Although it may be considered an unfortunate means to an end, there is an incredible opportunity and urgent desire by students, faculty and staff for real and powerful change to take place across campus. I am so proud to be part of a community so committed to speaking out in order to promote more inclusive participation and governance. Chancellor Syverud please engage our community in a way that seeks real and meaningful change and be willing to change plans when it is clear certain decisions were not the right ones; great leaders can and do this.


Lori Brown, Associate Professor, School of Architecture
Syracuse University
