A MESSAGE FROM THE PROVOST: The world is a very different place this week than it was last week. Students, faculty and staff may hold strong opinions about world events. Some may wish to express support for our men and women in combat; others may wish to express disdain for our policies. At its best, a university is a setting that encourages the free and open expression of ideas and differences of opinions. Over the next days and weeks, I ask that you respond thoughtfully and with tolerance to expressions of deeply held beliefs peacefully expressed. I ask that deans, department heads, faculty and staff use common sense and good professional judgment in response to the coming events.
