When, How, and Who to Respond to Insults in Our Environment

Open Letter to the Editors of the Cavalier Daily

Dear Editors,

I am responding to the editorial in the Cavalier Daily Wednesday (9-21-16) about the racial slurs on the walls of Kent-Dabney dormitory.  As yesterday's editorial stated, this egregious and hateful act is indeed appalling. We must rise as a community to repudiate such behavior each time it occurs. This is an obligation for all of us, and important for us not to wait for an institutional leader to frame every event.

Academic Freedom

One of the exciting things about being your provost is the opportunity to see so much of what I value exemplified across Grounds – excellence, community spirit, personal teaching and learning, inclusiveness, fairness, wellness and positive impact on lives and society.  But perhaps no value at a great University is more important than truth.  It is at the foundation of what we do in discovering and imparting knowledge with and to students. It is at the heart of why we find it so important to support academic freedom.

On Leadership

The Center for Leadership Excellence (CLE) is proud to announce that Provost Tom Katsouleas has agreed to serve as the CLE’s third executive sponsor, along with Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Pat Hogan, and Executive Vice President for Health Affairs Dr. Rick Shannon.
