I am addressing this letter to Lehigh’s Board of Trustees, especially to the corporate members.
I have read and re-read your Oct. 27 statement, which attempts to justify your taking “no action” regarding rescinding Donald J. Trump’s honorary degree. Once again, you have offered our community the equivalent of “thoughts and prayers.” To quote those bright and wonderful students from Parkland, Florida, “This is B.S.”
I ask you to stand up, take a real stand and explicitly tell the Lehigh community why you are taking “no action.” If you are willing to do so, then we can truly engage in discussion. Stop hiding, come out of the shadows. Be brave. Be accountable.
