Letter to the Editor: Professor responds to repeal of media policy at Ithaca College

I welcome President Rochon’s decision to rescind the ill-conceived Student Media Access Policy, though I am dismayed to read his comment that the decision had nothing to do with the protests on campus. I am not sure why he thinks this was a good thing to say. As one of the signatories to the letter sent to him by almost 80 faculty and staff, raising questions about his top-down style of corporate management, I feel this statement simply confirms his remarkable isolation from, and indifference to, the opinions of faculty.

Asma Barlas, Professor and Director of the Center for the Study of Culture, Race, and Ethnicity at Ithaca College
