Letter: Destroying the UEL would betray the community

To the Editor: I fully understand the need for a larger, upgraded performance space. I lobbied for years with success to build a new performing arts space in Greenwich, Connecticut, for public school students. However, consider this experience of a P’14. I did not pursue Brown in the late 70s because ...

Letter: Graduate student unionization

To the Editor: I write regarding the article of Feb. 2, 2018, “SUGSE fears University stalling talks on grad student unionization,” and to respond to and correct some of the points made in the article. Since the National Labor Relations Board ruled in August 2016 that graduate students at private ...

Letter: Gerrymandering

To the Editor: The Herald’s Jan. 31, 2018 op-ed “Gerrymandering — a political scapegoat” misrepresents the effect that gerrymandering has had on R.I. politics. Miller writes that gerrymandering has given Democrats an unfair advantage in Rhode Island, yet simple voter registration data shows ...

Letter: Traitors don’t make good fellows

To the Editor: It is disheartening to read that Brown students want to offer Chelsea Manning a visiting fellowship at the Watson Institute (“Ricci GS, Hemmatian Borujeni GS: Invite Chelsea Manning to Watson,” Jan. 24). I’m all for controversy. Invite Ray Kelly, Rick Ross and Milo Yiannopoulos ...

Letter: Yiannopoulos has no place at Brown

To the Editor: I am writing in response to the opinions column, “Milo shouldn’t be ‘dangerous,’” written by Fabiana Vilsan ’19 and published in the The Herald Thursday. I appreciate the writer’s time and thought put into this topic which is quite difficult to discuss. However, I emphatically ...

Letter: Undergrad teaching program needs reform

To the Editor: An article released Tuesday by The Herald regarding the pay system for neuroscience teaching assistant positions made a lasting impression on many staff and students within and outside of NEUR 0010: "The Brain: An Introduction to Neuroscience." We NEUR 0010 UTAs feel that this article, ...

Letter: Brown should go test-optional

To the Editor: Thanks to Owen Colby for making such a compelling case for Brown to adopt test-optional admissions (“Colby ’20: It’s time for Brown to go test-optional,” Oct. 10). It is abundantly clear that Brown’s goal of increasing diversity and access would be strengthened by de-emphasizing ...

Letter: Pokanoket land

To the Editor: As a Brown University graduate, I am appealing to President Christina Paxson P’19 and Brown’s leadership/administration to return the 375 acres they currently “own” in Bristol to the Pokanoket tribe. (This land was donated to Brown by the Haffenreffer family in the 1950s, according ...

Letter: Save the Indy and other Brown print media

To the Editor: We write as former College Hill Independent editors and contributors. We were dismayed to learn about looming cuts to the Indy and other campus publications, which could force many outlets to end their printed editions altogether. The Undergraduate Finance Board slashed budgets “out ...

Letter: Printed publications empower students

To the Editor: I’m greatly disturbed that the Undergraduate Finance Board has chosen not to provide funding to cover printing expenses for student groups that release paper publications. Such an announcement reveals an ignorance in UFB about the power of paper and the importance of creating a diverse ...

Letter: No reintegration for campus rapists

To the Editor: I was heartened to read about the number of resources the University has made available for victims of sexual assault in the April 12 article “Brown weighs reintegration options for sexual assaulters.” However, I was just as alarmed to read about the concept of “restorative justice” ...

Letter: Response to 'State of Brown' address

To the Editor: I am writing to comment on Friday’s article on the State of Brown address given by President Christina Paxson P’19 (“Paxson P’19 stresses advocacy, diversity in ‘State of Brown’ address,” Apr. 14). One of the most important elements included in the article is Paxson’s ...

Setting the record straight on the residency match

To the Editor: Thank you for your recent article about Match Day, the day where 115 fourth-year medical students at the Alpert Medical School were selected for post-graduation residency positions (“Med students find success on Match Day,” Apr. 4). However, as members of the Med School community ...

Letter: Recent editorial too defensive

To the Editor: As an alum of The Brown Daily Herald who went on to a career in journalism, I think your March 21 editorial,  “Toward a better Herald,” is too defensive. As long as The Herald keeps reporting honestly on campus news, The Herald shouldn’t feel the need to prove to anyone that its ...

Letter: ‘Go Bruno’ editorial was timely, but fell short

To the Editor: It was my hope that The Brown Daily Herald editorial board would have sent a stronger and more direct message to the Brown administration regarding the dire competitive position Bruno has consistently maintained over the past 15 years in Ivy League athletics and insisted on some straight ...
