Well. my hope would be simple...

that a speech will proclaim the facts that the University has long championed free expression, as did Thomas Jefferson.

At the same time, I would hope that the speech will remind the nation and people world-wide that the University of Virginia has, for a number of years, made great efforts to attract, recruit, and enroll large numbers of minority and/or disadvantaged students, and after enrolling them, has supported them strongly in many ways, including tremendous financial support.

Those facts seem to get lost in today's furor, and we currently do not seem to have a President who feels the responsibility to make those points publicly, or for whatever reason is unwilling to do so.

I said as much in my reply earlier today to Ms Sullivan. I suppose I will soon find out how she feels about that reply, and more importantly, how she feels about that responsibility. I don't believe I am at all unique in that perspective, and I hope many others will urge her to take a public stance that is not restricted to a reiteration of the rights of the protestors to express themselves.
