I write to clarify the inclusion of a comment by Phoebe Roe ’16 in the announcement regarding Summer Sendoff shared this week by the Office of Communications.

We sought a student comment for the announcement only to provide context for Sendoff, to help describe the event and its social significance. Phoebe was kind enough to provide that comment, which in no way was intended to serve as an endorsement of the changes being made by Student Affairs. I apologize to Phoebe for any embarrassment she may have suffered. 

It should also be understood that although some students found the changes controversial, I am confident that these adjustments are being made in the best interest of the health and well-being of our student community.

Associate Vice President for Communications
