Hispanic Studies professor resigns; second this yearBy Matthew Stone

Adding to a set of recent resignations, Hispanic Studies Professor Rogelio Miñana announced this week that he will not return after this semester. MiAñana will teach at Mount Holyoke College. He received tenure from Macalester last year.

MiAñana is the second Hispanic Studies professor to resign this semester. Maria Elena Cepeda, Macalesterƒ?TMs sole Latino Studies specialist, resigned last month. She is teaching at Williams College.

MiAñana, like Cepeda, cited low support for Latino Studies from a ƒ?oeminorityƒ?? of Hispanic Studies faculty for his resignation. He also noted the departure of multiple minority faculty members and the resignation of Dean of Multicultural Life Joi Lewis.

ƒ?oeI sincerely hope for a swift and vigorous response from the institution as a whole to this dismaying situation,ƒ?? MiAñana wrote Wednesday in his resignation letter.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Many thanks!

    I have realized that over the course of making a relationship with real estate managers, you’ll be able to get them to understand that, in every real estate exchange, a commission amount is paid. In the end, FSBO sellers really don’t “save” the percentage. Rather, they struggle to win the commission by way of doing a good agent’s work. In this, they invest their money as well as time to conduct, as best they are able to, the tasks of an representative. Those tasks include uncovering the home via marketing, showing the home to prospective buyers, constructing a sense of buyer emergency in order to induce an offer, arranging home inspections, managing qualification investigations with the bank, supervising maintenance, and facilitating the closing of the deal.
