Former University Prez on Gallaudet
A longtime university president who now teaches at George Washington University has written a column for the Chronicle of Higher Education about the protests at Gallaudet. Stephen Joel Trachtenberg says, "Next year will be a particularly critical one for Gallaudet as the constituencies endeavor to stabilize the campus. Stakeholders must move forward on an agenda to create a constructive, open atmosphere, with positive communication and the free exchange of ideas.. Too many people rely on its contributions for it to permit self-indulgence on the part of a few to detract from its important standing in the higher education universe."
