Hiram College

Dear faculty, staff, and students,

Rather than send my usual every-other-Thursday note to campus, I decided to forward an article published in today’s New York Times.

I grant you that much of what this article contains is not what many of us, including myself, want to see over and over again in print. But being acutely aware of what the national narratives on higher education include is a part of being a liberally educated person.

Please be aware that one of those featured in this article, Terry Hartle, is a Hiram alumnus from the Class of 1973.

Your President,
Lori E. Varlotta
