One question prompted President Samuelson to clarify the appropriateness of criticizing university decisions.
Students commit, by signing the Honor Code, not to criticize those we sustain as prophets, seers and revelators, he said. But, he further explained, this doesn't mean students can't disagree with the administration.
"I think you need to understand that you can criticize the administration; that does happen regularly," he said.
Draw your own conclusions on that.
As an FYI, another story I read today says that there will be a panel discussion on Monday on “Vice President Cheney and the Global War on Terror” in the Varsity Theater from 2 to 3:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend if interested.
The story I read says the following:
Each panelist will present a short statement, to be followed by panel discussion. After the panel speaks, the floor will be open for audience questions.
Jeff Ringer, director of the David M. Kennedy Center, will moderate the panel. Joining him will be Darren G. Hawkins, international relations coordinator; Donna Lee Bowen, Middle East Studies/Arabic coordinator; Ralph C. Hancock; and Scott Cooper.
