Hodges' Disappointing Exclusion

Hodges' Disappointing Exclusion

I am writing to applaud your editorial, "Orientation '98 Fails to Meet Goals" [Feb. 17]. Dean for Undergraduate Curriculum Kip V. Hodges PhD '82 seems to have assumed that student opinion is so tainted by current groups' self-interest as to make it unfit for inclusion in decision-making. It is disappointing to see him make such an assumption, especially because he did not bother to find out what those student opinions were before he decided to exclude them.
