After consulting with trusted faculty, Jon and I have decided to remove our initial post--one containing the internal correspondence surrounding the resignation of Andrea Gullickson as Chair of Music.
As with our decision to remove the Butler logo, we take this action not necessarily because we think this is the ethical decision, but because we wish to allow the administration no legitimate grounds for interfering with this publication. We want it to be unmistakably clear that should we disappear in the fashion of the TrueBU, that it was due to nothing other than dislike of the free flow of information in our university community.
As we have written before, we wish to dissipate an emerging climate of fear at Butler. We take this action not because we wish to further this environment, but so we can ensure the vitality of this forum which seeks to eliminate it.
