Letter to the Editor

To the editors of The Miscellany News:

Thank you for your Open Letter (Thursday, Sept. 7) and for your thoughtful consideration of so many important issues at Vassar. I appreciate your goals and honesty. The ideas that you raised are often complex and nuanced, and I expect some disagreement as they are discussed among students, faculty, staff, administration, and the Board.

I have found that the best way to proceed on controversial issues is to build relationships so that dialogue on hard issues begins with trust and the parties stay at the table. The campus initiative of engaged pluralism is designed to help create that culture throughout Vassar.

I look forward to continuing the conversation about these and other topics, and I would welcome the opportunity of meeting to discuss how it would be best for me to work with The Miscellany News reporters over the next year.

Thanks again,

Elizabeth H. Bradley

President, Vassar College
