Dear Chancellor Syverud
I am writing as a faculty member with deep concern over the withholding of legal supports & council for our students in THE general body. I see this as an abuse of power, especially troubling as it is being wielded against our own students after a supposedly “good faith” promise of nonretaliation. I use “our” instead of “the” purposely. Our students are exercising their lawful right to nonviolent protest; they have my full support & admiration. The values they are fighting for (inclusion, diversity, & advocacy) have deep roots in this institution & values that I personally share. I hope you will reconsider your actions.
