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 ...

Letter: You get what you pay for

To the Editor: Monday’s editorial on Brown sports underscores Bruno’s plight since beginning intercollegiate athletic competition in 1859 with a crew race against Harvard and Yale. In case you hadn’t guessed, we were dead last in the race. Historically, Brown has been cast as the underdog, especially ...

Letter: John Savage — A true educator

To the Editor: I particularly enjoyed your profile of Professor of Computer Science John Savage in the Feb. 28 issue. Of the 30 or so professors I was lucky to have at Brown, he stands apart for his dedication to students. John embodies the best of Brown’s undergraduate focus. When he first offered ...

Letter: On Brown's budget

To the Editor: I appreciate the perspectives shared in Lainie Rowland’s ’17 column (“Questioning the Budget,” Feb. 15) and welcome the opportunity to clarify a few points. The fiscal year 2018 budget, which was developed by the broad-based, representative University Resources Committee, advances ...

Letter: “International”: An artificial race

To the Editor: The problems that Aliosha Bielenberg ’20 addressed in his op-ed are absolutely essential. However, “International” is a race. It is an artificial race created by and for the American federal government to legally persecute, oppress and discriminate against the foreign population. ...

Letter: Brown should go gender-blind in admission

To the Editor: I wish to thank The Herald for its Nov. 30 article, “Brown consistently admits male applicants at higher rate.” This is an important topic for all members of the Brown community to consider. The article accurately quotes me saying I am “skeptical” of the argument put forth by ...

Letter: Brown should protect DACA-status students, staff

To the Editor: I cannot pretend to know all or any options actually available to students or staff currently at Brown under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program or any other immigrant program. I do believe that these individuals should be able to get some level of security or sanctuary ...

Letter: Brown should follow Columbia’s lead

To the Editor: Brown’s decision not to offer legal sanctuary to members of the community who are undocumented immigrants is disheartening to say the least. While I applaud President Christina Paxson P’19 for adding her name to the letter from the Association of American Universities that calls for ...

Letter: Brown should resist deportation

To the Editor: Colleges have always been sanctuaries of sorts. But it appears that Brown will not be a sanctuary for those undocumented immigrants whom our government wishes to deport. Brown will abide by the law as advised by its attorneys. Obviously, morality will not enter into the decision. Laws ...
