From former president of the GSA, Michael Bueckert provides an excellent commentary in “Message from Carleton University President Urges ‘Civility,’ Criticizes ‘Noisy Persons’“
Just before Christmas (December 19th), Carleton President O’Reilly Runte emailed yet another “Neuroscience Department update” to the Carleton community trying to assure everyone that all is well, and our interim move will be just a minor disruption to our work. (Why was it labelled “#1” when there have been at least 2 prior updates? But I digress…) She also pointed out how important it is that they get this money. Apparently “Delaying renovations” is not an option. Because constructing new buildings and boosting the local economy are apparently more important than keeping those commitments to existing students and faculty.
