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....

This spring we have had a number of campus conversations around issues of diversity, both in and out of the classroom. The Executive Committee of the College of Arts and Sciences Faculty wanted to take this opportunity to express our commitment to principles of academic freedom in the classroom and on campus. 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...

To the Editor of the Setonian: I am writing in response to the March 1, 2018 article you published about an experience that occurred at the South Orange Performing Arts Center, and to let your readership know what we have done since being made aware of the incident, and what we will be doing going forward.

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...

I am writing this letter in response to “Real Talk on Race at Seton Hall” event that occurred on campus last week. Disappointing. Historically these type of events rarely meet the expectations of those attending it, especially, the ardent supports of racial justice. That is not to say the event in itself a failure, I was surprised at the large amount of students and faculty in attendance. However, this time around the event failed to...

I am writing this letter in response to The Setonian article regarding the lack of racial diversity among the full-time faculty Seton Hall University, not shocking or surprising. Found in several marketing promotions is mention of a racially diverse student population, but noticeably absent is full-time faculty; we know now given the recent coverage. Although, I have met numerous students of racially diverse backgrounds, I in good...

By her own calculations, the taxes of a Rutgers University-Newark graduate student in biological sciences will go up from $2,824 last year to $5,174 under the new Republican tax-reform plan in the House of Representatives. According to a recent article in “The Verge” reporting on the new tax bill, this student went on to say that as a result she might have to drop out of her program, thereby losing four years’ worth of education. In...

I am writing this letter in response to an article featured in The Setonian under the Through Our Eyes section regarding the coverage of the Jemele Hill controversy at ESPN. The article written through the worldview of one individual fails to understand the viewpoints of others. The author quickly admonishes the action a black woman, but fails to do the same with President Trump, a white man. The President has espoused claims that are...
