Alumna response to SU Administration handling of THE General Body

Dear Syracuse University Administration:

Students are not inconveniences, they are your livelihood: start acting like it and respond accordingly. Take down the walls, both the literal one assembled this morning and the more figurative ones you believe exist between upper-level administration roles and students’ roles on campus. We are meant to be a community that listens, absorbs concerns, and responds in a manner that strives toward justice, access, equity, and support: there is no place for ego in such a process.

Unilateral changes without stakeholders’ input and incorporation of their values is never a good organizational management move. Syracuse University is better than the behavior of its leadership in the past several months. I strongly encourage Syracuse University, its Board of Trustees, and the Administration doing its bidding to try again.

Sincerely,
CCG, ’99
