Comment: While I would like to “engage in a campus-wide dialog” as requested by Dr. Walker, I note that these pages are accessible to the general public.
Although we have nothing to hide, this dialogue may prove to be more dynamic and effective if taken off-line. While the general public can be privy to the process itself, would it not better serve the university to keep the content at this point within the university community?
I submit this comment with the utmost respect for our historic values and institutional heritage.
Response to Comment: This point is well-taken and was considered prior to the public comment period on the website However, it was the subcommittee’s wish to provide an opportunity for the entire academic community to participate (alums and others), not just those with password protected access to a location on UIU’s website. Taking the discussion “off-line” would have required setting up an access system that would have made it impractical for all in our academic community to participate. The committee also wished to preserve the highest level of transparency in this process/dialogue.
