Board of Trustees
Gallaudet University
Washington D.C.

Dear Trustees:

I urge you to reconsider the selection of a new president for Gallaudet University.

While I hesitate to urge the Board to vote for one candidate over another, it is important to emphasize the need for a president who can communicate with the students. If the students of a university spoke only Arabic, for example, it is hard to imagine that a president would be appointed who did not speak Arabic.

A president cannot effectively lead the university if he or she is cut off from the students by either visible or invisible barriers. Gallaudet University has served the hearing impaired community well by providing an excellent education. In spite of the current charged environment, the Board can continue that tradition of excellence by selecting a president who will be able to best meet the students' needs.

Sincerely,

Patricia Schroeder
Congresswoman
