A dark cloud of distrust

I am disheartened and disgusted that Ms. Dragas remains on the Board of Visitors. She has betrayed the trust of thousands and soiled the University’s reputation worse than anyone in recent memory, and perhaps, in the University’s history. CEOs, elected officials, even public employees have been dismissed for lesser infractions. Two people even resigned for being associated with her nefarious machinations and ignoble reputation. The specious words in a July 16 email, “A Joint Statement from the Rector and President,” evince an egregious willingness to voluntarily ignore Dragas’ treasonous actions. Until she resigns, confidence will never fully be restored in the University.
