Today’s announcement follows a comprehensive decanal review that took into account the feedback of Maxwell faculty and staff, the Maxwell Advisory Board and the Maxwell Faculty Council. Van Slyke’s appointment was approved by the Board of Trustees’ Executive Committee.
Community Gathering at Hendricks Chapel, 7 p.m. Tonight
Dear Members of the Campus Community:
Earlier today, several hundred of your fellow students, faculty and staff participated in a community gathering at Hendricks Chapel.
We heard from many members of our campus community, all of whom expressed concern regarding recent events. It was a vital first step in what will be an ongoing process to foster a culture and environment that supports all students, faculty and staff.
Because this conversation is so critically important, we’ll be hosting a series of events and forums, including another community gathering this evening.
We invite you to join us for candid, but respectful, dialogue—as we experienced earlier today—at 7 p.m. at Hendricks Chapel.
American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) will be provided. For questions about accessibility or to request accommodations, contact the Equal Opportunity, Inclusion and Resolution Services (EOIRS) office at 315.443.4018 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I extend my deepest gratitude to all members of our community willing to engage in this conversation. We may not solve all our problems overnight, but together we can identify how to move forward as one community.
Dean of Hendricks Chapel
