Dear Editor and Tufts Community,
In response to your editorial “Making students the priority,” those of us who organized yesterday’s Edward R. Murrow Forum just have to say that you’re right and we’re sorry. The timing of this year’s event coinciding with the Admissions Office’s Jumbo Days was not intentional; the date and timing of the event were driven by Brian Williams’ schedule more than anything else.
Communications and Media Studies is committed to our students at Tufts, and despite a very small staff and no designated faculty, we try to provide students with a full and rigorous academic program, vibrant internship opportunities and lots of cool events. We promise to think about ways to make next year’s Murrow Forum more accessible to more students, as well as the general public. But rest assured, students come first with us and always will.
Director, Communications & Media Studies Program
