Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

The University Record of 28 March 2011 is particularly fine; thank you. The reason this issue was of greater than ordinary interest is that, as compared with most past issues, it is very rich in research reports.

Single-molecule science, the re-framing of the study of climate change, the consequences of cell phone use, the capacities of the human brain — inquiries and advances like these are the kinds of things that distinguish our university, and that our members want to read about.

Respectfully I urge that, going forward, administrative matters be reported with concision, while research reports in The University Record be full and frequent. That shift will make us all proud.

Respectfully yours,

Carl Cohen

Professor of philosophy, Residential College


The University Record welcomes letters from members of the university community. Those on topics of broad university interest will be given preference for publication. Letters should be no more than 500 words and must be signed or contain contact information. The editorial staff reserves the right to reject any letter and to edit and/or condense letters for publication. The staff also reserves the right to limit the number of letters submitted by the same individual. Letters may appear in small type. Organizations submitting material must include the name and address of an appropriate officer. Letters must be received by noon Wednesday to receive consideration for publication in the next issue.
