Dear Willard College Warm and Supportive Community,
Early this morning three faculty were arrested by Campus Public Safety and charged with looting student dorm rooms. Since closing the campus last week and sending remaining students home, the dorms have been empty. Sadly, three faculty members, including a Criminal Justice professor, decided to take advantage of the empty campus to enrich themselves. The three faculty are currently in detention in the Lombroso Center awaiting a judicial review and summary termination of their contracts.
Please, we must stick together during these difficult times. We understand that the freeze on pay and benefits has been difficult for faculty and staff, but know that administration’s decision-making is guided by a concern for your best interests. Always.
Sincerely, President Henry Cotton
