I find it hard to believe that Jeanne was censored by the list
moderator.  In all likelihood she was censored by her supervisor or
higher up at the University of Minnesota.  It is very likely that her
actions may have caused a furor at the University that her superiors did
not like and thus the censure.  Many colleges and universities have
policies in place that limit the use of resources (university email
included) to job specific functions and lobbying of any sort is often
construed as conflict of interest with the job.  I hope that Jeanne
resubscribes to the listserv and is able to continue to provide her
insight and research to our group after the controversy at UMN dies
down.

I marvel that there should be "political" limits placed on the
list-serv. Where there is any sort of human discussion and discourse,
politics will be present (whether it's "in-your-face" or subtle). For a
group to say, "no political overtones" is asking the impossible. Even if
we don't agree in our politics (and I imagine that none of us are
exactly in step with one another) we have should be afforded the right
to explain and expound on what we see as justice or injustice in our
various systems.

What Jeanne did was highly informative, especially to someone like me
who is still rather new to the profession. It helped me to understand
just how much politics works within our various educational systems and
how important it is to be vocal about things that may be inherently
wrong.

Jeanne, don't leave the list-serv. I'm sure that there are many more
instructors who are still learning the things that I am and we need folk
like you that are willing to speak clearly and forcibly about issues
(even political issues) that will impact students, not just in your
community, but in all of our communities.

I think it is clear that Jeanne went beyond keeping us informed to
recruiting our help to reverse or hinder the implementation of a policy
decision by the powers that be at UMN.  One can view her intervenion
negatively (as I suspect some would see it) or in the best tradition of
US style lobbying for a cause.
Since Jeanne states that she is not allowed to post commens with
"political overtones", we are all assuming this comes from the editors
of this listserve.  I am sure Jeanne will be reluctant to share where
this perspective comes from but since it may affect the tenor of future
discussions, I thnk it is important that the editors of ths listserve
clarify for us the limits of our posts and inform us whether they are
behind the efforts to limit discussions.

Bernice,
FYI -- Forwarding this on to you from a list serve I'm on. There were
quite a few responses that these types of 'political' issues should
continue to be talked about on this list.

Subject: General College

Hello, Everyone!

In April I was asked not to post any "political" messages about the
General College (GC) to this listserv. In compliance with that request,
I am providing only the basic information pertinent to the fate of GC
below, and I will then again be unsubscribing from this listserv.

On Friday, June 10th, the Board of Regents of the University of
Minnesota voted 11 to 1 to accept President Bruininks' strategic
planning recommendations in order to make the University of Minnesota
"one of the top three public research universities in the world." Among
those recommendations was the closing of GC.

GC's last freshman class has already been admitted for fall 2005. Over
the coming 2 or 3 years, portions of GC will be retained as a department
in the University of Minnesota's College of Education and Human
Development. The fate of programs like the Center for Research on
Developmental Education and Urban Literacy (CRDEUL) is currently
unknown. Within the next several weeks, task forces will be established
to engage in further planning. The task forces' reports and
recommendations will be due December 10, 2005.

Dean David Taylor has accepted the position of Vice President for
Academic Affairs at Morehouse in Atlanta beginning August 1, 2005.

The first faculty member to submit a resignation was Carl Chung, whose
work on theoretical perspectives for developmental education, including
his recent article in the Journal of Developmental Education, was the
topic of discussion on this list in spring 2005. The article that Carl
and I co-authored on the theory crisis has been accepted for publication
in an upcoming issue of Research and Teaching in Developmental
Education. Carl, who was due to come up for tenure at the University of
Minnesota next year, has accepted a teaching position in philosophy at
Century College. I am sure that the profession of developmental
education will miss Carl's many contributions.

Thank you to those of you who wrote letters and sent e-mails in support
of GC.

Jeanne Higbee
