Alumni petition on campus sexual violence

I’m guessing President Gottfredson has received hundreds if not thousands of emails and letters from alumni and parents about his mishandling of the rape allegations, and UO’s failure to deal with the larger campus problem. An alumni petition has now been started, here:

… As U of O Alums, we know the university is capable of so much better. We call upon the University of Oregon to address the demands of the U of O Coalition to End Sexual Violence and begin by apologizing for the mishandling of the recent alleged gang rape. As fellow alum Chris Feliciano Arnold recently wrote in the LA Times, we want “courage, not crisis management.”

    Please, also ask for gottfredson to leave. Better yet, the JH cleaning that has been needed for so long.

      The JH cleaning is continual. There’s no one there with more than a few years tenure.

        At this point, I would rather have the senate hire the replacements. JH has a hiring/promotion problem as much as anything.

          I doubt the makeup of a senate-led search committee would be any different than those that we’ve already had for prez, provost, etc. Senate involvement in lower level hires would make it that much more difficult to hire good upper level people (come to the UO where you can have the university senate – which is notoriously slow, fractious, etc – looking over your shoulder for every hire – fun!).

    It is past time for the men to be held responsible for their actions. It is the university’s responsibility to protect all of their students and prosecute to the full extent of the law!!! If this president and board can not step up then it is time to replace them with a responsible administration and board. The athletic director, as well!!
