At OKWU, we teach you to be selfless rather than self-centered. We are more interested in you practicing personal forgiveness than political revenge. We want you to model interpersonal reconciliation rather than foment personal conflict. We believe the content of your character is more important than the color of your skin. We don’t believe that you have been victimized every time you feel guilty and we don’t issue “trigger warnings” before altar calls.

This is Not a Day Care. It’s a University!
Would that every president of every university in America could express himself/herself with such candor, clarity, and leadership.
University faculty and staff, especially those at my alma mater, the University of California: stop kowtowing to students, and stop selecting as chancellors and presidents inoffensive invertebrates. That is not what built the modern American university, and it will be the lack of strong leadership that will speed the decline of higher education in the United States.
