Publicity Poor for Visiting Committee

Publicity Poor For Visiting Committee

In your article "ODSUE Visiting Committee Consults Students, Prepares Final Report," [Mar. 6] Dean of Students and Undergraduate Education Rosalind H. Williams claimed that the meeting on Wednesday, March 4 was well-publicized. In a sense that is true, but in another, more accurate sense it is not.

Dean Williams cites advertisements placed in The Tech. I saw one such ad. It announced that the ODSUE Visiting Committee was coming. Regrettably, there was no mention of what ODSUE is, nor even of what the initials stand for. Needless to say, the ad was not particularly compelling.

Perhaps Dean Williams should reconsider why students did not attend the meeting.
