Dear President Jerome,
In this time of great upheaval on campuses in Ohio and across the country, with thousands of Americans questioning the nation's administration, it is reassuring to have a man of your stature at the head of our university.
During the past few days' confrontations, you have shown your wisdom in dealing with the students on this campus. Though we may not agree with all of your policies, we have faith in you and your decisions. You have undoubtedly gained the respect and support of a great number of the campus population. We know you have ours.
We realize what you are up against with the students, the administration the faculty, and the board of trustees and believe you are doing what you think is best for all concerned.
Thank you for your time and patience when time is short and patience thin.
From 4 students
