Letter to the Editor

By Adam Vander Sluis and Vera Sidlova

On behalf of the Search Committee for the Dean of the Institute for Global Citizenship, we would like to thank students, staff, and faculty for their involvement with the search. As student representatives on the committee, we would particularly like to express our gratitude to fellow students. Your attendance at the talks and discussions, extensive and thoughtful feedback, and sharp questions posed to the candidates played a crucial role in our discussions. After taking into account feedback from all corners of campus, the Provost has decided to extend the search into the next academic year. We hope to see as much, if not more, involvement in this ongoing search. Your enthusiasm, critical eye, and genuine concern for the Macalester community have been inspiring!Adam Vander Sluis ’11 and Vera Sidlova are contributing writers for the Mac Weekly and can be reached at [email protected] and [email protected]
