I received a rather timely response from Provost Weixlmann today and I am happy to report that he responded to my questions much more thoroughly than I anticipated and with a more human face than I have seen in his communication with other alumni members on this matter. That being said, humans lie. And I wonder where, on the delicate balance of truth, his response lies. Please see Weixlmann's response in bold. I hope to provide my commentary on his response in a post later today.
I received a response from SLU Provost Joe Weixlmann yesterday and wanted to share its contents. While he did not give me the "whole hog" response he's provided to several other alumni, I was taken aback by his response. Rather than respond to my questions, he inferred that because I am appreciative of Dr. Meyer's work, that I think he can do no wrong, and am, therefore, illogical. Please read on for my response to the provost.
As a proud alumna of Saint Louis University, Department of Communication, 2007, I am appalled by the attacks by the university on tenured faculty member, Dr. Avis Meyer... I urge you to visit http://saveavis.wordpress.com to learn more about the struggles of Dr. Meyer against the university.
