Power to the People

I would like to thank the Arts and Sciences Faculty of Harvard University for giving hope to those of us in the College of Arts and Sciences here at Ohio University.

Prof. Carson: I do hope your observation is meant to be ironic. As an alumnus of the GSAS I consider President Summers' forced resignation to be a low point in Harvard's illustrious history and a black eye for the notion that academic freedom includes the obligation to speak the truth as one sees it without truckling to political correctness.

I view it as faculty recapturing their rightful control over the management and administration of a university, even though in this particular case I don't agree with the faculty.

I'm not a big fan of the corporate model, which appears to hold that faculty work for the administrators. In my view, it's the other way around.
