Re: “WRAS deal disregards history and GSU students

One aspect of a student's moral education lies not in the curriculum but in the behavior of the faculty, staff, and administration and in the policies of the institution. Students will observe how fairly and responsibly they are treated, what values are reflected in the university's rules and regulations and the ways they are administered, how the university treats its employees, how the university relates to the community, how faithfully faculty and administrators keep their promises, and how assiduously they defend the values of open and thoughtful debate that are central to a learning environment. How tolerant are we of others' views? How thoughtful is our feedback to students? Is this feedback an exercise in judgment and honest criticism, or is it merely punitive? Do faculty and administrators allow their individual liberty to overwhelm all other values? Do we shock and patronize our students or awaken them? Do our programs assist students in entering the world of internal speculation and reflective thought? Students will be smart enough to discern if the university remains a symbol of enlightenment or an institution whose defining ambition is to sustain the status quo and its own special privileges.
