Letter to the Editor: The new policy doesn’t accommodate anyone


After reading the article in Tuesday’s Chrony (“Third time’s a charm,” March 8) about the U’s newly adopted, so-called “Accommodation Policy,” it left me with the feeling that they have pulled one over on the courts.

The policy accepted is no real accommodation of faculty to students with strongly held differing beliefs.

It just said that a student can ask, but most faculty members are dead set against listening or accommodating a student.

If this is the attitude of most of the faculty, it is no wonder that students feel professors don’t think that students’ beliefs or thoughts are important-just their course content.

Faculty members know the truth and what is right, students must follow.
