Appreciation for Special Edition Faculty Newsletter

To The Faculty Newsletter:

I am writing to express my most sincere appreciation for your efforts in assembling the recent Faculty Newsletter about the report of the Task Force on the Undergraduate Educational Commons. Undergraduate education is a core mission for us. The open and free expression of ideas is a core value. Many of us in the MIT community were motivated to express our views on the undergraduate curriculum. Your efforts enabled this expression. Given the number of contributors to be satisfied and the very tight time line for publication, you were handed an MIT-level challenge. The quality of the Newsletter speaks clearly to your having met the challenge. Nice work!
