Letter to the Editor:

Guns don’t kill people. People kill people. Stop blaming guns for the actions of criminals. All American can agree on at least one thing: A world with less violence is a good thing. Notice I did not say gun violence, domestic violence, or hate-crime based violence. All violence is an issue, and those who commit those acts should be punished. The nature of criminals is that they do not follow laws. Writing more restrictions into law...

Thanks for doing a story on Criminal Justice in the last issue of The Setonian. After reading it, I wanted to reach out to CJ students and augment some of the information contained there. I took over as Interim Chair on July 1, 2018, and in mid-July I introduced myself to CJ students by email. At that time, we were in the process of hiring a new faculty member, and we completed that process in time for the start of the Fall semester....

Many college students in the twenty first century come to a university with the idea of learning a specific skill. Perhaps the student wants to become a doctor, a pharmacist, a teacher, a computer specialist, or a journalist, a diplomat, a financial analyst. With a little luck these students will achieve their ultimate goal. The road to that goal is sometimes a straight line. However, just as often the route is circuitous. On May 20,...

In Thomas Schwartz’s article “’Rumored’ Criminal Justice Curriculum Changes Worry Students” (4/11/2018), he reported that I had engaged in a “questionable” practice of selling a textbook that required students to pay me $20., but he failed to report that I did not require students to buy this casebook, but only to read the legal cases in it. I informed them that they could obtain these cases, listed in my course syllabus, free online....

We maintain a strong commitment to principles of critical and independent thinking, which are the very core of a liberal arts...

Dear Editors, As deans of the College of Nursing, School of Health and Medical Sciences and School of Medicine, we are writing in response to the April 19 editorial “Hasta la vista, Seton Hall School of Medicine.” We do not believe that it accurately represents the University’s plans for the new Interprofessional Health Sciences (IHS) campus and the School of Medicine. While the related news article about these plans correctly...

Dear Editors, I write this letter in order to apologize to you, our students, for what is happening, happened, and will happen at Seton Hall University. As demonstrated in the College of Arts & Sciences faculty meeting on February 23rd concerning the “diversity” requirement, inherent to the forums on “Microaggressions” and “Privilege”, and has been reported to me on numerous occasions over the past several years, many members of...

Dear Editors, When I arrived at the University on Tuesday I was in the parking [deck] looking for a space. When I got to level 4 I saw a car on fire. I assumed that someone had already notified security. However I decided to call security anyway fully expecting to be told that the fire had already been reported. In fact, no one had reported the fire. Students and others just walked by the burning car without showing any concern even...
