Dean Leavitt: ‘I have heard the message’


By Steve Leavitt

I am aware of the reaction to the Concordiensis article that appeared in the paper yesterday, as well as the follow-up articles. I want to say that I have heard the message you have all been sending. I want to say that I remain firmly committed to helping Union in its role as a leader for Greek organizations.

A strong vibrant Greek life is critical to what makes Union a uniquely strong community.

As many of you recognize, we owe much to Timothy Dunn in mobilizing the Greek community. I want to apologize for the impression my comments made as quoted in the paper’s article. I can only say that they do not reflect my opinion of Timothy’s service to Union over the last five years.

We hired Sunni Solomon after a thorough search; he is highly qualified, and I know him as knowledgeable and thoroughly committed to Greek life at Union. He came to Union after the changes in social life were decided by the Greek Task Force, and he played no role in that decision.

I recognize that students appreciate open communication, and I would be happy to speak with individual students or groups of students. My office hours are on Wednesdays from 2:00-5:00 pm. If that time is not convenient for you, please contact me at x6116 to schedule an appointment.

Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students
