Faculty Statement of Support for the
Task Force on Student Engagement


We, the undersigned faculty members, consider the issues raised by student leaders to be important matters for the Institute.  We believe that it is crucial to take these concerns seriously in order to ensure they are adequately addressed.  We understand that there is great opportunity to strengthen community, improve decision-making, and educate student leaders.  As an educational institution, we should always take advantage of opportunities to support student learning and development.  We applaud the joint effort to address student concerns and look forward to seeing what progress we can make towards these goals.
