Supports Shepard's leadership at WWU

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDMay 5, 2014 

I find the recent attacks on Bruce Shepard mimic Fox News' use of the Affordable Health Act to get at President Obama. An ethnically diverse campus and access to health care for all are goals I believe most rational folks desire. Yet both have become lightning rods to attack decent, well-meaning administrators. Let me state, categorically, that Bruce Shepard has done more to create an environment conducive to teaching and learning for faculty and students than any other Western president that I have worked with since arriving at Western 1n 1970.
