The Sandspur has recently received several opinion pieces and letters to the editor from members of our community regarding the upcoming Annual Summit on Transformative Learning which was critiqued in an article we published by Dr. Maurice O’Sullivan in our February 18 issue of The Sandspur.
Dr. O’Sullivan’s article, entitled “Professor Questions Rollins’ Multicultural Efforts,” examined the college’s commitment to diversity and the decision to hold the opening day of the upcoming summit on St. Patrick’s Day. The QR code to the right also provides a link to his original opinion piece.
The 11th Annual Summit on Transforming Learning will be held Thursday, March 17 through Friday, March 18, 2016. This year’s theme is “Advancing Racial Justice: Rollins & Beyond.” RSVPs are due by March 14.
Due to a high volume of responses to this topic and a limited space in our opinions section, The Sandspur has chosen to print three of the letters and opinion pieces we received in this week’s print issue of our paper. The remaining pieces have been published on our website. We would like to encourage any community member, faculty, staff or student who is interested in this topic to read Dr. O’Sullivan’s original article and the responses and to publish a comment on our website in order to further the discussion of diversity on our campus.
