Like many of us in the arts community I was shocked and dismayed by the news of your sudden dismissal at Syracuse. As you know, I have had the privilege of following your career since your first internship with Ralph McKay and the Andrea Frank Foundation, and I have always admired your commitment and professionalism. The critical intelligence you bring to all your work is outstanding.
Last year I visited Syracuse while taking part in a conference sponsored by Colgate University and Hamilton College. I was impressed by the remarkable spirit shared by the academic community. It seemed to me that the various schools had created an intellectual synergy that promoted the best in contemporary art and discourse. How disappointing to learn that Syracuse University no longer wishes to partake in such an endeavor.
Please know that despite this setback, your colleagues hold you in the highest regard,
